    Cool Our pond - April 2010

    This weekend we cleaned up around the pond. It was taken over by scrub brush, vines, and saplings. After about 5 hours of work yesterday, we got the part next to the greenhouse and fountain cleared. I posted the entire photo set on my facebook page if you want to see more.

    So Lovely and tranquil looking. Could see many hours spent there with a good book and a glass of wine.

    Looks like it would have been a lot of work to get it that nice. Well done!

    What an idyllic looking place! I can imagine myself spending hours there and listening to the sound of the cascading water.

    Thanks all. And yes, the snow is finally melted. I like to spend time sitting and listening to the sound of the water. It is relaxing. I love spring here in the Ozarks too. I have neglected maintaining the area around the pond and it had become pretty wild. At least now I should be able to mow up to the edge again.

    Cheers,
