Spring is FINALLY here!
There is a school of thought that winter is time for introspection and reflection.  Drawing into yourself a little emotionally while the temperatures drop outside and the flurries fly. 
For some like me, it can be a long wait!  I love it when spring comes.  Also known as the season for transformation, roots that have been dormant all winter suddenly sprout and bloom.  As the days get warmer, the buds and leaves start to form on trees and bushes and the dandelions come  back en force!
The pond has melted and the fish can be seen near the surface again.  We put the fountain into the pond again last weekend.  The fountain shoorts about 15 feet in the air and gives the fish much needed oxygen after the long cold winter.
Additionally, I put a small water feature in down on the Homestead side of the property.  Working on the fish and plants now.
I'll keep you posted.!
