Well, I just moved into a new house, and it happens to be right next to a small pond. It's filled with water lilies, frogs, and lily pads. I've also seen butterflies and dragonflies galore over there. Cardinals and blue jays also abound, as do small green lizards. I even once saw a small snake. It's fun to just sit over there and enjoy the beauty. But I really love those water lilies, so I wanted to share them with you. (FYI, I found out that they close up at night. Also, after you cut them, they don't really open wide again.)
All of them were deep purple except this one. For some reason, it's fuchsia.
These frogs made weird sounds when they would jump.
Here's that snake I was telling you about.
And these are my favorite photos.
You should click on this next one; it's cool to look at up close.
