WHILDEN’S POND 7 © 2002Big Cypress Gallery
We named our backyard pond Whilden’s Pond in honor of the man who owned the property before us, Leon Whilden. During Leon’s time there, he turned the property into an orchid and exotic plant nursery called Orchid Isles. One of the amazing things about South Florida is the amount of birds we have here in the winter months. It’s wonderful to sit and watch them right outside the swamp cottage window.
