I like the shape of this fountain. I wonder what it's made of. Why is it so green.

Handsome and elegant, yes, but the colors somehow don't look French. Maybe more Italian with the yellow building.

Je te souhaite une bonne et heureuse Année de lumière de passion et d'émotion; la fontaine comme Robert Doisneau très jolie.

C'est pas ça qu'on appelle les fontaines Wallace?C'est vrai que je les associe toujours à Paris, il n'y en n'a pas par ici.

That's an amazing green!

I'm surprised that neither you nor Laurent call these fountain with their name: Wallace fountains. They were named after the English philanthropist Richard Wallace, who financed them in the sad times after the siege of Paris and the Commune, when public water was scarce.
One of these stands even in London, just outside the Wallace Collection.

Fountains---large or small--always captivate me. This is a lovely one---of course. MB

C'est une fontaine Wallace et tu sais qu'elles ont été fabriquées en Mayenne bien sûr !
