Garden Urns

Grecian or Roman?
Don't you just love the warm earthy tones with a touch of the rustic about them? I do and these wonderful examples are at our local nursery. And yes, that is water springing forth from the urn in the right foreground. I tried for a better shot but as there is a high wire fence around this section, I had to hold the camera between the wire "squares".

Such beautiful textures! I love them too.

Not only wonderful colors, but such pleasing shapes...and the wire fence at the back of the shot adds to the richness of the composition. And, as always, a brilliant quote to go with the image.

Great photo - and yes, these colors are much more desirable than white, grey, yellow etc.!
