The Pond That Was
I've been outside watching the birds and looking at a big black-filled place in my backyard where my wonderful pond was filled in yesterday. I enjoyed the fish and frogs, the waterlilies and lotus, and just listening to the waterfall. But it was really too much for me. The heron ate the fish, the frogs went away (???), I didn't get the flowers out and into the garage in time and they died from the cold, and the string algae the last two summers made daily cleaning of the skimmer necessary. I had to fight the HOA to get permission to build it, and spent a small fortune on it, but everything changes. Thank goodness for photographs...here's one I came across this morning...maybe I'll get the HD with more out and post more later.
