Absolutely beautiful monument and bell in a terrific environment of flowering trees and a BENCH too! What else could make it better? Aha! I know, by the beach!!!!!!!!!! lol

The whole picture is stunning -- forget my beach comment. . .

Amazing how fast it goes from a snow covered ground to a lush and blooming paradise.

Such a lovely setting. I'd love to toss a blanket under that blooming tree and have a little picnic!

A beautiful place to sit and read a book or simply to sit and wait for some inspiration.

Happy weekend. I'm really glad you joined Photo HUnter.

A parkette, must mean a small park. It's beautiful!

The only problem would be if that school bell should ring.

Would remind me of teaching those
dumb ding-a-lings!

Love the color of that tree and the bench is great. Such a peaceful setting.

I love old bells...they always make me think of stilled voices and I wonder what they used to sound like.

Beautiful looking place... and the slab bench looks about as perfect a place to rest and take stock as ever I've seen.
