Happy Mothers' Day
Thought I'd post a photo of the pond as it looks mid-May. As the weeks go by, it should get more colorful with the water lilies and the annuals I planted this morning. Also the tiger lilies and Stellas will add some color soon. So many fish survived the winter--and lots of new fry! The tadpoles are growing fast. Love to sit out beside it and hear the water trickle down the waterfall. And I anxiously anticipate the return of my beautiful iridescent dragonflies. Also picked a few peonies this morning. Peonies always remind me of my mom who passed away about six years ago. She liked to place peonies on her mother's grave on "Decoration Day" as she called it. Hope she's looking down with a warm smile on her face as she sees the gorgeous deep pinks, pale pinks, and white blooms. And, mmmm...are they ever fragrant. Hope that all the moms out there are having a wonderful day.
