Jonathan's pond

This is a watercolour of the pond when first made.  Probably actually about 2 years in as the reeds have grown.  Sadly the fish are very shy now and don't bask in the shallows - the Paston herons are far too cunning.  Jonathan tried every way to keep them out including putting wire high over the pond, (it's a walled garden).  The heron, who has a bad leg) just looked both ways, alighted in the upper garden and walked down under the wires for a feed.
