The good news is that I got my pond going today! However, the voles chewed a hole in my hose for the second year in a row, so this is how my waterfall looks until I feel like sticking my hands in the cold water to replace it. It's an easy enough fix after I rerouted everything last year to make it easier.

My bog bean is starting to grow.

Here's the pond today. First spring photo of the year. Still waiting for warmer weather so I can replace my waterfall hose and get the breather out. You can see the Prairie Smoke (at the very bottom of the photo) is growing. I planted it there last year, so I'm hoping to see its first blooms this year. It's an early bloomer and should be blooming in about a month.

Found out today a wood chuck has moved in under my shed and has started digging fortunately on the outside of the pond so far. He is going to find a have a heart trap and get moved to a new home.

Pretty yellow baby!
I need to get the stream running on my list. First I have to walk the stream and fix all the deer damage. They make a mess over winter snacking on the plants.
