This is a place of serenity, right outside my office steps. The leaves of the willow trail in the water, and I can hear a bullfrog (although I haven't spotten him yet, darnit.)
There is a male redwing blackbird that hunts for food for his mate that is nesting in the tall marsh grass nearby.
One day I saw a lizzard. Another day I saw a bunny.
I wish I could just work there instead of my desk!
