Waiting for the frogs

This is the pond part of a not-so-small water feature in our backyard built by the previous owners of our house, and according to them these lily pads were put there by the original owners over forty years ago. We’ve got some designs in our head that involve taking a stick of dynamite and blowing the whole water feature into a few million pieces because it’s a bit of a hassle to maintain and a family of raccoons love to use it as a watering hole. In its place we’d like to set up stadium seating for the mud-wrestling tournaments we’re going to hold between Jon and my cousin GEORGE!
