The photo above shows how my pond looked this morning. I am thinking that by tonight, all of the remaining ice will have melted. When the ice melts on the pond is one of those seasonal landmarks I always look forward too.
Seeing open water is always a treat. The color of the pond changes with the sky and wind. It’s sometimes gray, sometimes blue, sometimes sparkling; it is always changing.
At present, all we have is a pair of mallards on the pond. I look forward to seeing more ducks as the migration progresses.
