A lot of my lovely viewers enjoyed my previous post showing a fountain in NY with a rainbow at http://loredana-donovan.blogspot.com/2012/04/mystic-fountain.html. So today, I'd like to show you the fountain in full view and its beautiful surroundings in Madison Square Park. What I like about the first picture is the scene with the mother and son pointing at the rainbow in the water in amazement. They must have been as excited as I was to have spotted it! This is a very popular place in the park, and many people gather around the fountain and enjoy the view of the Empire State building in the distance. The Empire State looks dreamy today among a bit of clouds, as if it were floating in the sky. I'm contributing this photo to Walk in New York at http://walkinnewyork.blogspot.com/.
The second photo is a close-up shot of one of the beautiful containers with flowers around the fountain. These containers are just gorgeous filled with many colorful, smaller flowers and pink tulips in the middle. I like the way the tulips meet the fountain in the picture. I love gardening and the key to arranging flowers in a container is to have lots of flowers with different textures on the bottom for fullness, taller blooms in the middle to create height, and a bit of cascading greenery on the side. Lovely! I'm contributing this photo to Floral Friday Fotos at http://floralfridayfoto.blogspot.com/.
The third photo zooms in on the flowers in the container so you can enjoy a view of the smaller flowers, the different textures and colors. They are very delicate and pretty in pink! I like the interesting round shapes of the red and white flowers on the right, kind of spiky and fun. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a garden covered with a mantel of these cheerful little flowers, or perhaps along the path leading to the door of your home, welcoming you inside!

Lastly, on a joyful note, I'd like to wish everyone a peaceful and happy Holiday weekend! No matter which Holiday you celebrate, may it be full of wonder and amazement!
