One of the markers of Spring that I always look forward to is the melting of ice on my pond. As you can see in the photo, we are almost there. It seems like this year winter dragged on forever, but I checked and was surprised that last year the pond only melted a week earlier. In 2015 it had melted on March 27th, so I don’t always have to wait this long.
It is such a joy to see the open water reflecting the sky, see the aquatic plants growing beneath the water, watch the tiny fish darting around, and have the ducks return to glide across the surface. Building the pond has been on of the most rewarding things I have done in my life.
