When my daughter Meade was 14 months old we took her on a walk at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington D.C.  Lickety split she headed towards the famous Ellipse pond and took an unintentional dip.  My husband Ridley went right in after her and seconds later they were safe but soaked.  I can’t look at a water feature now without remembering the incident.

John Evan’s botanical pond paintings make a real splash.
