The lower pond

Shaded by fig trees

Tucked away under a fig tree

This little haven is the result of diverting the spring.

The water trickles down the rocky ‘waterfall’ to the right of the picture, fills the pond, and soaks away down a slope.

The willow tree just beyond and to the left was no more than a sapling when we gave it this supply of water.

Galileo and Florence immerse themselves in the pond to cool off between bouts of rough-and-tumble.

    Absolutely beautiful and peaceful Damaris.

      Thank you, Elisabet. It’s a place I would like to be more often than I am.
