Where I used to live from childhood, they have a pond which has public access in the Zoo and it's about 35' across and round.
The pond is about 2' deep and they have Koi in it. Couldn't do that now cause someone would dump in a bottle of dish
washing detergent to see it bubble in the fountain...LOL...but not for the fish unfortunately.
Anyway it got pea soup green so unless the fish actually came to the surface you could not see them one summer.
I wish I hadn't been 12 or 13 at that time cause Water Hyacinth would have straightened that out for them.
It at times gets very windy here, like in a thunderstorm. I have the balcony, but can't figure what might shade it that
wouldn't get destroyed if such happened. I have a couple of baby Cypress trees which I hope(it's a long shot) will
solve a problem for my friend when they get bigger. But getting them to grow inside has been hard so far.
Haven't the faintest, but there is a rock bottom of a lake cove which is dry due to lake lowering for 3 months a year.
But boats run aground there in summer. IF I can get these trees to grow at all, and IF I can root them during that
three month period, when the lake is normal height, they will stick up from the water there warning people of
shallow water. Yea, I know a wild imagination to be sure...we'll see...
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
