Le bosquet des dômes

This is the dome grove in the palace gardens. Unfortunately, the two domes that adorned this fountain were destroyed in 1820 but the name remains. See it with the domes by clicking here.

Il mériterait que l'on le rebaptise ce bosquet...

So very pretty, I love the detail too, and movement of water. Couldn't get my computer to show the facebk link, but I'm sure it must've looked magnificent w/domes.
