Finally – some hot weather has descended and I am back wearing my favourite short overalls. This afternoon, I was working away on the path, pleased at my progress. Lytton, my big, brown lab, spent much of the day sleeping on the porch in the shade.
At one point, I turned toward the house and happened to spot Lytton reclining in the empty pond. It isn’t possible to see from this picture, but he is lying in a spot where the pond bottom dips down about 8 inches. Smart guy … L. discovered a perfect place to cool off. That wasn’t quite the use I had contemplated for the pond!
