A bit more scenery

I thought today was a good day to share abit of my home with you. This water fountain sculpture is called "The Spirit of Life" Commissioned by Katrina Trask in memory of her husband Spencer Trask who lived his life in service of making Saratoga a better place for future generations. They owned a large mansion that is now an Artist Retreat, Artist from every medium may it be a painter of a songwriter are given the opportunity to spend a few months at the retreat to work on their craft and the grounds surrounding the mansion are full of the most amazing rose gardens which are open to the public during the summer and draws many people not only tourists but locals who just love to wander the gardens and photograph.
Just another bit of our rich history. I should mention the Trask's lived in the late 1800's.
