    I thought I would branch out from @CountryEscape 's "What is your weather like ... today" topic and ask you: What does your pond look like ... Today?

    As we all know, ponds go through many changes throughout the year, some large, some small; some good, some bad. From snow melting, to plants growing; From leaves falling, to the first snowfall. I thought this would be a great way to share how your pond looks on any given day in comparison to the last time you shared, which could be be as recent as yesterday, last week, or last month, depending on how frequently you'd like to share. It would be an nice way to see how all of our ponds change throughout the year, and what they look like on any given day.


    Here's how my pond looks today:

    Snow is slowly melting, but the pond is still frozen solid.

    Just Today by my pond, Di spite the cooler weather and light snow, the birds still are singing their heads off cause spring is on the way. Ice all melted about 10 days ago I think.

    Here's my pond today. Hubby just finished the 'bones' of the waterfall, bit more work to do, but I included a close up for you all you rock lovers out there. Still hiding my liner. But I'm loving the feel of the pond. It really looks like its been there much longer than 3 months. Couldn't have done it without you guys and all your know how! Just tested my water and its all testing consistently where I want it. I am going to add a trickle tower because I would like to add more goldies (no more koi, unless I find a white or silver butterfly), I also want to have the safety net of another filter and pump.

    Went out today and noticed the snow cover in my stream area has gotten really thin. not bad considering today was cloudy and windy. I helped to speed up the process by shoveling a couple more inches off.

    had friends that had a pool and thought it was cute 1 year when a mother duck had her babies by there pool and the next year they returned times 30 of them .They had to really do something as there salt water pool was smelling funky .Cost them almost a thousand dollars to get rid of all the ducks .They had to hire a wild life guy to relocate them and stop them from coming back .Now 10 years and no ducks have come back

    They usually can't land with the net up over the pond, I have it off working on cleaning some of the junk out.

    I have had occupy wall street ducks :( I knew if they had babies here there would be a problem. So between me running around like a crazy lady swinging a broom and my chihuahuas doing what Chihuahuas do best they were never comfortable enough to make our yard their home. But they still stop by here and there and sometimes spend the night on my floating island. This year when I got out side to do winter clean up I found 3 old eggs in various locations throughout our yard. Come to think of it I found one in the bottom of the pond last year too. Weird.

    Need to be careful I guess if we ever have an easter egg hunt back there! Poor kids might find rotten duck eggs.
