Friday afternoon fountain break

Continuing our theme of North Carolina today (see previous post), here is a fountain (you have to look for it!) in the formal gardens around Tryon Palace in New Bern, N.C.  The gardens are really lovely with their serpentine paths, statuary, and floral specimens.  I took a little issue with their fountains, though, as the insides are painted swimming pool blue/green, which just doesn't go with the ambiance of the gardens.  But, if you are sermon writing today - or running errands - the whole scene of brick paths winding around lush greenery should be just the Friday afternoon break you need.
