The many Moods of our Pond



I know what kind of day it's going to be. 


All I have to do is look at my pond.





I can see it from every room (except one) in our house. 






Does it ever become an every-day-ordinary sight? 





No...I never fail to look that direction many, many times a day. 




The scene changes every few minutes.




Every season is different.


   


Clouds make beautiful patterns.





She wanted to go for a ride.





Ducks and geese come and go.





Even when frozen a small area always stays open. 






Mr G on Ice



Winter is always magic.





Ducks hide in the summer heat.





It's hard to pick a season that is my favorite.







The old boat is always ready to take for a spin.





When it's time to celebrate...The Pond is always ready.

Have a great week dear Friends,

Gina

  1. What incredible photos, I'm not sure I could pick a favorite season either. And with that view I'm not sure I'd ever get anything done.

    1. Hello Mac n. Janet,
      When I paint and when my eyes get tired, all I have to do is look up and I am refreshed and ready to continue. Our Pond is a true blessing. Thank you for your visit.

  2. Thank you so very much, Gina, for treating us to a year's views of your pond. Just to see one of those from a window of this apartment would be splendid. You have greatly raised my spirits. xo

    1. Hi Cathy, I don't know why it's not working. It may have something to do with signing up with Google plus. Have you tried the email box?

  8. Dear Gina,
    It seems your pond is truly magical in winter. What great spectacles it must have provided over the years, and I mean not only when handsome Mr. G was skating on it.
    Warm greetings, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, You should see the pond when it really gets cold. We have 200 to 300 ducks taking up the only open water in the valley. Our water source is from a Spring with temperatures of 65 degrees F., it never freezes at its source.
      Welcome home. It's great to have you back.

  11. Bonjour chere amie Martinealison, Yes, Nature has been very kind to us. We found this pond more than 20 years ago, just as it is. We have not changed it in any way. We have left it as we found it. Sometimes one can not, or should not, improve on Nature. Thank you for your visit. Hope you are well.

    1. Dear Mary, We were skating to the Ice Skater's Waltz. Becoming braver and braver and closer to the open water after each glass of champagne.
      Have been admiring your incredible photos from your recent trip to Africa.
