ROCK OF AGES


Rocks have a magic all of their own -- they support and naturalize 
their surroundings without effort.

  1. I remember those fountains. We're going to be in the Northwest in a couple of days. We won't be getting to Portland this trip but maybe in fall sometime.

    1. Hattie, I noticed that Melissa (below comment) called this water fountain a Benson Bubbler. Not familiar with this unique name. Perhaps you are as you have spent so much time in the Northwest. Have a good trip -- barbara

    1. Rita -- I feel that mother nature's bounty can be like magic. We don't know so many things about how it all works. But her results do impact with our psyche, mostly in a positive way. thanks -- barbara

  5. I took a picture the other day in which I could include either the bee hive or the rock, but not both. I chose the rock. They anchor the land.

    1. Joanne -- I agree -- they do anchor the land. They play a part in our language, "be like a rock."
      We know what that means. thanks -- barbara

    1. Melissa -- I did not know that the Portland fountains were called Benson Bubblers. Quite a unique name. Checked out your calendar on Amazon -- loved the cover! I am sure you have a winner with that calendar. thanks -- barbara

  8. I enjoy how you always find the very best in the simplest of things. It takes a mindful eye, and heart, to see these things in life.
