My pond looks pretty gloomy all winter
covered with snow and ice.
Slowly but surely it comes to
life with the arrival
of sunlight and warmer temperatures.
Unfortunately I seem to have developed
a waterfall leak..
kinda comes with the territory.
I know where the leak is but I haven't been
able to seal it...
I turned off the waterfall and put
a pump with a little fountain in the pond
so there is some water movement.
Maybe I'll put some flowers on the waterfall.
Several years ago, Joe built a chest
to house my filter.
Previously I had it covered with rocks
making access for cleaning cumbersome.
I just happened to catch sight of one
of the six tadpoles.
I have only seen them twice since
they were introduced to the pond.
This one is turning it's dark bullfrog
color and beginning to take on
the shape of a frog..
