A Slow Dribble, Please: The Mossy Rocks of Aix

I have to admit something ... I don't like fountains. Or really, I should qualify: I don't care for water thrown artificially into the air -- no Jet d'eau or Buckingham Fountain for me, thank you. I do however love a still pool, or water flowing in a stream (a la Villa Lante or the Alhambra). But what I enjoy most is a slow drip, the sort of mossy dampness of a good old grotto.

As far as I'm concerned, these mossy old rocks are perfection:

Lovely. Aix en Provence, August, 2011.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
