Even in October, Charleston’s gardens are still kicking. This was taken a few years ago. It was still pretty darned warm in South Carolina that October, but this garden felt cool and inviting. That could have something to do with this water garden and fountain. Nothing gives the illusion of cooler temperatures in a garden like a water feature. The floating glass sphere added some extra movement, and struck me as a sort of orbiting moon or planet to the fountain.
