High Tide and Green Grass

May 13, 2015


I thought you might appreciate a springtime classic. So, where do I get my ideas, you ask. I once lived in a house with a big backyard, complete with such a low spot. After a heavy downpour, water would pool there, up to a foot deep. This wasn’t far from the patio, where I’d sit and gaze upon my temporary water feature and fantasize thus. It also fascinated my little buddy, Boot the Cat. He’d wade out in it, water well over his belly, and look about, as if to say, “We really should do something with this low spot.”
