They should love that! How many do you have? Do you leave them outdoors 24/7? Our adults have been outside for a couple of weeks now, and will be until October. The smaller, younger and special ones will be going out at the end of this month.

Only a couple of thoughts - its going to be a bit tricky pruning the trees and/or painting the fence. Presumably you have a filter for the pond? We have various basking areas in the ponds and clumps of plants that they sit on.

Do make sure they cannot climb out. In one picture there are two sitting on the pond edge.
