On the lower side of the pond you can walk around the edges and look across to the wooded property, home to some very spoiled ducks:
There's this small evergreen point that juts out into the pond. Do you see the nesting box in the tree? Snapped this photo at just the right time to get some great reflections in the water:
On this more sheltered side of the pond there was still a skiff of ice on the water. Do you see the small hut in the trees? For spying on the ducks?
My friends were saying yesterday that their place was so beautiful in the autumn. Actually, I think early winter is hard to beat.
