Court House Fountain

By 8:00 a.m. today, I was already wilting from the heat. The cicadas were singing like mad and the humidity was so high that everything looked hazy. On my way home with some groceries, I sat under a tree to sketch this splashing fountain.

I've always been crazy about this fountain. That pale turquoise colour seems tender and thrilling to me. And who could resist those lion gargoyles? My favourite is the bucktoothed-vampire one in the middle photo below. As if his teeth aren't irresistible enough, he has dragon wings as well!
