Little Wild Ponds

Just a small pond near I-95, banks all grown up and brushy, floating mats of water weeds all over, what a mess! Thing is, it isn't a mess, it's about perfect, just like it is. If you sit still for a while stuff starts to move, heads pop up out of the water weeds, frogs jump and fish splash. 30 minutes, with a bush hog on a tractor, is all it would take to tame it, and kill it. I'd rather just sit there and watch it. I put in a couple of flower shots from the yard too, just because. They bloomed steady all winter.

Your back yard photos are spectacular, Tsiya!

I know the greatest treasures are always right in front of us!

Just gotta slow down, like you always tell us!
