before and after – on top of the fridge

by cjj on March 26, 2010

I was really very fond of this collection of stuff. It has taken many years to get as good as this. Because there was no where else in the house that was suitable, it was with great difficulty that we decided this was the only possible spot to put our new snail pond!

So this is what is on top of our refrigerator now. It’s like a glowing 3-D television set, but much more interesting!

To decorate the pond is a rock of red jasper from the Gwydir River, a fossil leaf from the hill behind our house, and an antique silkworm chrysalis jade carving from Xi’an in China.

Hi Yoriko!

why, thank you Shirley! It is a transformation, isn't it? I can quickly see 5 black spots that are all snails, there are lots more of them, but that big black and white one at the front is the carving.
