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 .
