Artist's Description

featured in The world as we see it or as we missed it & a top-ten placement in the group’s ‘Give me Water’ challenge

When Alice awakened she was not quite certain of her surroundings. Nothing seemed to be as it should be. Up was down and vice versa… a looking glass world where things were just a bit off kilter… and there we were… in a Bald Cypress swamp… IN OHIO!!!
I never dreamed these trees could exist in Ohio, of all places. I have often seen them throughout the southern states during my travels… BUT IN OHIO?
There is a wetland area created by a vernal pool on the grounds of the Dawes Arboretum near Newark, Ohio and a walk along its boardwalk is like stepping back in time to a primeval wetland area (minus the boardwalk, of course). I fully expected to see alligators, copperheads and other nasty beasties appear at any moment…perhaps even a Jabberwock!!!… and then I recalled where I was… in Ohio… or had we wandered through the looking glass?
