Yesterday was a pleasant Saturday morning. I drove towards Des Moines to take a walking tour of historic homes. However, I ended up pulling into a landscaping company. I was attracted to the place because of this fountain.
I felt like I was in an Italian piazza. I sat down and just listened to the water as it cascaded over the large bowls.
Walking through the grounds I noticed several little accent pieces among the flowers. I liked these little silver bells. They actually sound like a wind chime and made a very soft sound.
This chair reminded me of days gone by.
When I saw this green door I thought of an 1972 movie called Behind the Green Door. I figured the owners probably did not have THAT in mind when they set this out. Sometimes my mind is a bit twisted. I know it is just a whimsical decoration.
Though this is a new building, it was intended to look like an old farm house. I liked that.
Again I heard the sound of water. I thought how nice that would be in my yard. Then I thought about the cost and the work and .... yes, such beautiful grounds take a lot of work. But they sure are nice.
I liked this area a lot. The stone blocks make wonderful places to sit. I seemed to find myself sitting a lot.
Inside I saw this little guy. I could almost hear the music he was playing. I think the clerk thought I was a bit off for taking a picture of this but she was polite. She was probably told it is best to leave "such people" alone...! Heh!
I am sure they carved this beautiful maple leaf just for my Canadian friends! What? It's an OAK leaf? Well, close enough...!!
Oh yes... there's the acorn!
