Re: 1663: "Garden"

I just noticed: in another garden, my formerly-gigantified Mars rover and kitty-cat have gone back to normal size. Wah. (It's not a browser thing: I've only ever viewed this garden in Firefox.) Oh! And the giganto-table growing from Bambi's neck? It's now normal sized, growing from the deer's back, ...

Not really. Water doesn't need to be very deep to totally obscure any unevenness in the landscape it's flowing over, and the fact that it's flowing tends to suppress any waves.
