In the town of Vankleek Hill, just 15 minutes north of me, the local Home Hardware store has a pond right outside its front door.
It's full of gorgeous waterlilies...
...and lots of colourful fishies.
These guys are really friendly.
Every time I leaned over to take a photo, they practically jumped out of the water.
I think this guy wanted to come home with me. Hmmm. I wish I had a pond!
