Every Spring I look forward to the day when all of the ice is gone from my pond. Yesterday, was the day it happened. It is so nice to again see the mountains and sky reflected in the water, and when the sun is shining, see the sparkles and flashes of the sunlight on the ripples.
It always amazes me just how quickly all the critters adapt to the sudden open water. Yesterday, when we walked around the pond I noticed that the water striders were already out skimming across the mirrored surface.
