Each year I marvel at the growth of vegetation erupting across Scudder Pond. The pond feeds ducks and beavers, geese, and river otters. There are often turtles sunning themselvs and bull frogs hurrumping at night. Lily pads are lovely, fresh in pinks and reddish browns and withered latter, lazy browns and tortured greens. All of it reflects on the water's surface, even the clouds above. Enjoy the following paintings.
