Historic Building associated with the early Copper mines of the Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan.
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.
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
Tabor -- Thanks for the nice comment -- barbara
Lovely complement of textures.
Florence -- thanks for the comment -- I do enjoy the textures in nature -- barbara
Absolute magic, Barbara. I love how you found it & expressed it so beautifully!
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
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.
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
"Praise be to the ROCK"
Birdman -- I remember one of your blogs where you stated you built with stone. I feel your heartfelt comment refers to your stone construction. thanks -- barbara
Love the layers, especially the moss. (Also like your new Benson Bubbler image on the title card!)
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
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.
Michelle -- you say the nicest words. thank you so much! -- barbara
Grey and green with a few other "splashes". You make Nature come alive.
I have two rock gardens and every year I see new things pop up ... my kind of gardening!
