Tony’s Garden: Shells, Glass and Mint


A corner of the garden, near the pond. I washed these shells and placed them back on the decking.They are part of the pond environment, together with the plastic alligator, the ducks that have lost their heads when tons of snow fell off the roof on top of them, and the iris and waterlilies. Once the pond was deeper, and had fish in it, but it took about an hour for one of the herons to dispense with the fish. There are many acers round the pond, and clematis climbing every which way; and overhead the lead swan which comes from a Sussex house from long ago. The mint has grown so thick now, if I want to see the waterlilies I have to push past the mint, and can smell it in the autumn air.
