We have had a very mild spring and summer by most accounts, and by mild I mean it wasn’t that warm. That’s unusual for Southern California. It is August and it is summer so I’m going to embrace the what little heat we have had. Besides, I’ve been wanting to do this post on the topic of water features, from pools to ponds. So here goes…
Some people in my region depend on the ocean to cool them down. As a red head, the “beach / sunbathing” option left me some years ago…actually, it should have never been an option.
In light of the heat that usually hits this time of year, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share some some of my favorite water features…mostly swimming pools, but there are a few reflecting pools and other images that will hopefully cool you down (if you’re experiencing hot weather), if only in your mind.
Wouldn’t this folly be wonderful in a backyard…of an estate?
So, what are you doing to stay cool this summer?
Oh, and remember, when swimming it’s always wise to swim with someone (the buddy system)…
So what are you doing this summer, plenty of time in a pool or on a veranda sipping a cool drink?
