I would love for us to have a peaceful pond, with water plants growing, in and around it,
and some colorful we could watch swimming, and a few frogs and turtles.
Wow, you could give us a beginners class. A water snake would be fun, especially when looking up from below - it's not quite a snake - close enough?
Newts do that too. I have often had an evening visit from a tiny Newt, while working on my laptop in my room !Many people do not know that both freshwater turtles and aquatic garter snakes HIBERNATE outside of the streams and ponds they live in.
You explained it beautifully, and it was so vivid that I was transported to an underground grotto, like Capri's fabulous Blue Grotto, where I found all of you, sipping your beverage of choice, lying on luxurious recliners, observing the beautiful glass-bottomed display above ....I'm not sure if I explained what I meant.
