Early Spring Pond


This time of year spring and winter bounce back and forth, even though plant and animal life is starting to stir. Here are a few photos of my pond taken this morning. Lots of mosquito fish don't show because of the glare. However, one of our frogs is up and about and so is Mr. or Ms. Mud Turtle, who comes for the fish food when I whistle and tap my feet on the ground. Their tune of choice and mine? "Memories."

Our pond has an earth bottom and was dug by my husband. Nature inspires my life and work in many ways, and when I'm not just observing the flora and fauna, you might find me carving a gourd or making a basket sitting by the pond .

OH I'm so jealous! I love my pind, as you know, but it's not so natural as yours. Being square doesn't help of course!

I hope you write a lot more about your pond so that I can come here and dream.

How cool! Your pond looks so natural... and are those water lily pads on the surface? If so, I bet they look gorgeous in bloom. What fun...the turtles recognizes your song. Nature is amazing!
