As I commented on her post, I really like gilt and fountains, and wow, did Jackie in Toronto show some gilt and fountains of Peterhof Palace in St Petersburg. I had not heard of the palace. It is fantastic. Here is a teaser photo and take a look at more photos of the palace at Jackie's post. They, the photos and the objects are wonderfully lavish. There are some good things about Australia, but we have nothing like this and nor does the US or Canada.
