I live on several acres that are noticeably less groomed than my neighbors yards. I have a smallish pond next to my house that is stocked with blue gills and largmouth bass. I planted several species of oxingenating pond plants to benefit the fish. Oxigenating pond plants I came to find are really just prolific weeds. But everything seems happy. Different forms of herons will visit my pond as part of their meal plan. They stand stoically unnoticed for long periods. There’s a heron in the painting.
