Theme Day: Fountains

Phoenix is full of fountains both large and small and I’ve featured many of them on this site.  When you live in a desert, the need to see water becomes almost obsessive.  So instead of another grand, large fountain, today I’ll feature one of my favorite small fountains.  This one is located in the Desert Botanical Garden and I stop by to see it on every visit.  I’m not sure why.  It is very simple but I guess I love its simplicity.

This is just lovely. Like you I love a natural fountain, nothing too much and this looks exactly as it should, cooling, refreshing, simple. Very nice.

I know it makes a pleasant sound. I have heard it myself. Soothing and refreshing at the same time. Lovely.

The sound of a fountain is so calming. This one looks like liquid silver.

You're right about the whole obsessive thing with water in the desert! We keep our fountain on 24 hours.
