Flowers by the pond...


 The flowers around the pond are easy for me to remember....


Yellow iris's circle the entire pond. They multiple very fast and every year we dig out at least 100 plants to share with friends. The iris's are in full bloom every May!


The first year here, Tony put in two beds in the front of the pond. This year I added tiger lily's to see how they do by the pond. There use to be black eyed susan's here, but it doesn't seem like they survived the winter. This is also the spot where the snake likes to hang out....


Lily pads use to cover 1/4 of the pond but washed away with the flood of 2011.  Now we have a tiny corner of lily pads. 


Tony and lil Tony made this homemade bridge from a fallen tree. If we follow this bridge, it takes us to the back of the pond and a hidden bench. 


Lets go over one more homemade bridge....


If we follow the grass to the woods we will find another bridge that takes us into the woods. We think a doe had her fawn there and we have been staying away from this section of the woods. We don't want to scare them away.


Next time we will need to take a trip around the inside of the pond....

I would love to spend an hour in that yard swing looking at your pond. So tranquil . . .
