Another whatever fountain this one from Switzerland again. I am not sure why the young man is wrestling the piggy (is it a piggy?) it’s possibly a quintessential farm scene, I do not know. What I do know is it’s December, the Christmas festivities are soon to be upon us and till then there is still a lot to do. I also know, that thanks to my Vegetarian Kitchen Goddess and all round sensible woman Elain from food-Bod I have watched all seasons of the Great British Bake Off starting with 2016 and going backwards to 2011, or was it 2010? There is nothing more therapeutic than watching GBBO in between frantic bouts of work and hacking at the computer key-board, than the GBBO. Well, country walks, yoga and meditation aside, I guess. Since watching the GBBO and GBBO Creme de La Creme, I have acquired cake pop cake mould (and have produced cake pops covered in white chocolate and gold dust), large silicone half circle moulds, in which I made a nice mango mousse, bought pandan flavouring and yuzu juice and generally spent substantial amounts of time in the baking section of the local food markets, as well as the KADEWE in Berlin (they don’t stock Yuzu, surprinsingly). I am now the happy owner of gold and bronze glitter powder for decorating, and also a pearly pink. On the other side of food heaven I have taken to experimenting with shirataki noodles, which frankly, I think are very yummy. Especially so if you buy the fresh ones from the fridge section of your local supermarket, they don’t smell odd at all, they absorb all flavours from your spicy sauces, and I love the texture too.
I have of course also been photographing fountains. Quite a few in Berlin, switched off for the winter season, they do understand winter in Berlin, bone-chillingly freezing, some in other places and soon, (when you read this, I will already be there) I will be over in lovely London eating my first mince pie of the season, stocking up on PG tips and seeing if I can find some more fountains, beyond the ones I already have. I seem to remember there is a nice one on Trafalgar square. Anyhoooo – this post is whatever fountains, and the topics, fittingly are all over the place. Below the full fountain:
This month is whatever fountains, loyal fountain submitters TGeriatrix submitted a big fish and a hat ; HeyJude loves her Swiss fountains and also Scottish fountains, as well as downright lovely fountains. Aletta, finally joining us again, has a great fountain for us: , like this one with wolf (really truly, well probably) Chava, well travelled as she is, submits a lovely simple fountain and its’ big brother and we are joined by a newcomer, who submitted, so-called Dingsbums Fountains – Whatever 🙂 – titled, intriguingly Wismarer Dingsbums Fountain and Princess Diana et voila!
