Le buffet d'eau en eau !


Buffet d'eau Mansart Versailles fountainVDP had shown you the 'water buffet' in the gardens of Grand Trianon castle and told you about the marble and the architect here. On 15 August, she was gobsmacked when she saw the flowing water, it was so beautiful and made such a difference with the previous post!

VDP vous avait montré le buffet d'eau de Mansart dans les jardins du Grand Trianon et parlé du marbre et de l'architecte ici. Le 15 août, elle a été époustouflée par la beauté en eau ! Quelle différence avec les précédentes photos "sèches" !

Someone spent some time building that one. Probably has a nice sound to it as well.

We live in a world where we are surprised to see flowing water from fountains...

So soothing to the spirit to watch and listen to water in a fountain so this being a "buffet" must be awesome!

How wonderful! It is always sad to see a dry fountain. Glad you were there to see it flowing, Ciel!
