A gazebo with a domed roof. Hmmm, can't say I've ever seen one before.

Neat gazebo. It would be fun to have one down by the pond. MB

More great colors, I don't know how you do it. I also like the contrasts: for example, the gree tree on the right against the blue sky and the brown (textured) building.

A nice square, I like that gazebo. Am I mistaken or I can recognize some colorful horses?

Bibi said...

Very pretty! I'm waiting for the band!

Jacob, what the heck am I seeing to the left of the bench on the back side of the fence? It looks like a blue horse, with its head bowed, cropping grass...but I know there must be some more reasonable explanation.

It sure does look festive! I really like that dome.

The city square gazebo.
Love, love, LOVE this shot !!!!
This is a lost piece of city makeups here in the mid-west. You see them occasionally...... but not like we should.

All dressed up for the holidays. It looks very festive!

I love Ocala! This is super, love the Christmas decorations. Will there be some season's concerts?

Jacob said...

@ Brattcat - You're right! It's one of 50-55 brightly colored horses that make their home in various places in Ocala. What's nice is they don't eat much and they're easy to clean up after and no vet bills!

Very elegant! Every town should have a town square and a gazebo, it should be a law! I have taken pictures of many in towns all across the country. Some day I'll have to find them all and do something with them.

Up North here, it seems odd to see leaves on trees & Christmas decorations. Bitter cold day today. Wish I was in Florida!

Hi Jacob,

Very beautiful!
It remains of the town square of 'Star Hollow' in Gillmore Girls. Very pretty!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Best regards
Asta

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - Did you say you were gonna do a drive-by shooting! Yikes!

Jacob said...

@ VP - Yes, there are actually at least four colorful horses in the square and some 50-55 more around town!

This is enticing! You have some nice things to look at there in Ocala! As to my "Cielo" post, these are rentable guest houses on a hill overlooking the beach. Each has a name, and they are fascinating open-air houses, "Cielo" was on the outside of the front gate, so we were seeing sky between the house's front gate and it's surrounding patio.
