Thanks to the beaver we now have a bridge to walk over. Originally a walk way between two ponds, the beaver crosses from one pond to another daily at the same spot over and over again which in turn creates a cut in the path. Eventually the cut out path that the beaver used to cross over from pond to pond has joined both ponds and allows water to flow between the two. A small bridge was constructed to cross over our new beaver cut canal.
The grounds and edges around the ponds are covered with dried up Lotus seed pods. The Lotus Flower dries up at the end of summer and the seed pods get heavy and fall to the ground dispersing their seeds.
The Great Blue Heron, a year round resident, in flight on a Fall day. While the temperatures drop, many birds fly south to warmer temperatures. The Great Blue Heron stays and enjoys Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens year round.
