Water Whimsey - Fountain at Garden in the Woods, Framingham, MA, Aug 17 to Sept 7, 2010

Granite bowl (hand-carved by a local craftsman) with bamboo pump is one of the nine garden water features on exhibit at Garden in the Woods.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - "Water Whimsy", an installation of large and small water features is now on display at the New England Wild Flower Society's Garden in the Woods, 180 Hemenway Road, Framingham, MA.

In addition to the Michael Mazur fountain in the entrance garden and the Nate McCullin bird baths in the wildlife garden, there are nine features which appear in Water Whimsy.

They are located; at the entrance to the Curtis Path, in the Idea Garden and Edible Garden, adjacent to the Rain Garden, and opposite the Patio Garden.

Included in the show are bubbling, flowing, and standing features. Elements were chosen to appear timeless as opposed to new or antique. Chiseled stones, mill stones, saddle stones, stone balls, molded balustrades and caps, granite bowls and bamboo are used to create these features and provide ambiance.

~ Water Whimsy continues in the Garden through September 7, 2010 ~

Garden in the Woods is open Tuesday through Sunday and holiday Mondays 9 am-5 pm. Admission is $8 for Adults; $6 for Seniors (65+); $4 for Youths (ages 3-18).
