Fountain in the Window - Weekend Reflections

Last summer I caught this amazing picture of the fountain in one of our town's antique shops.  Dan owns this amazing place--he totally restored the building, which is a lovely work of art in itself.  You can see tall trees behind the fountain. These are honey trees, which perfume the air in early Spring.  There is an amphetheater and playground below and just beyond flows the Willamette River.  On the other side of the river you can see the hills of South Salem.

Summer in our town is beautiful--pots of hanging flowers grace the old brick buildings and one can hear the children playing in the park.  There are movies and special music groups in the park each week in summer, along with our fabulous Fourth of July celebration, which includes a hometown parade and great fireworks over the river, along with a waterfront full of doodads and good food.

(sigh)  I'm already longing for spring and summer.  I suppose it will come soon enough.

For more wonderful reflections from around the world, be sure to visit James at Weekend Reflections.
