Fountains 5_19 2

It is that time of year when we are planting our gardens and getting our outdoor patio set up for summer grilling and entertaining. Below are some pictures of beautiful fountains I found at various nurseries while shopping for flowers. As I mentioned in my last posting, I really enjoyed the new Star Trek Movie Into Darkness and I love that Lucille Ball was instrumental in getting the original Star Trek series onto TV. Lucille was a brilliant business woman and stood her ground in a male dominated industry! What a visionary! Some bloggers are thinking that Into Darkness leads us into a new TV series – could that be possible? Do we dare dream?

I have always loved Spock being intrigued by the Vulcans and their logical approach to life. In watching the 2009 Star Trek movie there were a couple of phrases that really caught my attention. When “old” Spock is talking to “young” Kirk he says to him: “I have been and always shall be your friend.” He pauses between each phrase of words for emphasis and there is real emotion from Spock. His human side is coming through showing he deeply cares for his long friendship with Captain Kirk. But even more intriguing was when “young” Spock had a fight with “young” Kirk. First he shows emotions that Vulcans should have under control. His father stops the fight. During a conversation his father says to “young” Spock: “You asked me once why I married your mother, I married her because I loved her.” A full-blooded Vulcan showing emotion and love! (Remember Spock’s mother is human.) We know the Vulcans and Romulans share the same ancestry and potentially split during the Time of Awakening under the teachings of Surak. His teachings was of pure logic instead of emotion. However, we are seeing through Spock and his father that the emotions are still there – regardless how much under control they claim to have their emotions. There are always a lot of life lessons to be found in the various Star Trek series and movies. It reminds me of kanzensakura recent posting on Star Trek that there is a lot we can learn! Live long and prosper!

  2. I have a Star Trek garden. My husband put rocks in the shape of the Federation symbol and inside are only Star Trek named daylilies. I also have 5 Star Trek named hosta and one iris. I found a guy to custom make steel laser cut markers. I was looking at ideas for a Star Trek fountain when I came across your site.
