Watery Wednesday: Fountain


At one end of the Down Town of Auckland towards the railway station are these projecting water jets. They remind me of a similar one in Bugis in Singapore.

At the back are the Pohutukawa trees also known fondly as the New Zealand Christmas trees. The red flowers bloom at this time.

most of the newer malls here have this kind of fountain. i saw kids playing on the fountain last weekend--they were all wet.:p

How different, this is all flat? So can anyone just walk in if they want? Like on a hot day, does anyone do that?

Lesley said...

this must be a great way to cool off - if people are allowed to run into the jets.

My children and I LOVE those things! We don't have any here, but we visited family in Kansas City and they had one of these plazas!

Very pretty. Those trees are beautiful!

I like this kind of fountain. Big hit with kids during the summer months.

I see this in our malls here too. And the good thing is that in summer they allow kids to play with the water.

The fountain is certainly different. I like it.

Yes, Ann, the 'floppy bakeware' are silicone pans and you really should try yours! They are a bit awkward to handle sometimes, but bake quite nicely.

That would be a fun place on a hot day. We won't have any of those in my part of the world any time soon.

Water for the thirsty,
Water just for play,
Water for the forests,
Water for the hay—

Water’s what we’re seeking,
Both on sea and land,
Watching for the wet stuff,
Cameras in hand.
