My Pond in Spring!



Remember our pond from those icy days of winter? 
I took several photos all frozen and glistening! Use my new search box at the top if you want to compare winter to spring!




 For those of you who haven't seen our pond yet, Dick and I dug it and built it ourselves. The huge Lava rock was drilled at Silverthorn's Landscaping, near Aylmer and was boomed into the hole.




The hole is about five feet deep and full of rocks. We heat it in the winter and the sound of the bubbling water was worth every back breaking, sweating, miserable minute it took to build!




It serves as a bird bath and deer watering hole. Every morning when I come out to go to work, the edge is soaked from animals dripping.




This was a gift from our marvelous neighbors, the plant fairies...




Our other sweet friends gave us a half dozen snails. (See up in the top right hand corner? ) These puppies are about two inches across. I think this is the only one that survived.


If you're thinking about building a water feature, take it from me: Do it!




All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

If you get pictures of the animals making all the water drippings, I'd sure love to see them! It is fun watching birds bathing, deer drinking, and squirrels stealing.

I love the sound too. I had snails once but the raccoons think they were brought in just for their dinners. They didn't last long.
