Happy May Day and Pond Reflections

Happy May Day!

Wow! can you believe it is already
The garden is definitely coming to
life and all our daffodils are starting
to bloom along with other early
spring bulbs like hyacinths etc.
Our white star magnolia is also
starting to bloom . So,our
spring garden show is beginning.

We have put in lots of hours in
the garden and will soon have
most of the beds cleaned up
and I have moved a few
plants around.

How about you are you busy
in your garden too?

I am sharing a few different
shots that I took of our pond
over the past few years.

A misty morning shot.

A good place to relax and enjoy the beauty
of nature.

Pond reflections

I love the spring beauty as the
serviceberries and crabapple trees
bloom around the pond.

                                                   I enjoy reading a book
                                                   on the dock .

And watching the Canada geese with their
young is always relaxing.

I am looking forward to lupin season again.

Even in early winter I love
to walk around the pond and enjoy
some reflection.

                                                 Hope you have a wonderful
                                                 weekend! I am hoping to get
                                                 to a couple of garden centres 
                                                 today to see what is new and

                                                          Thank you for visiting!

Dearest Carolyn,
Happy May Day to you and yours!
Such a lovely compilation of photos over the years.
Yes, spring is the best season due to its many blossoms.
Enjoy it and stay well.

Carolyn, such lovely pictures of your pond (although it was a bit hard to enjoy them with the nerdwallet ad bar being so distracting and impossible to dismiss). Thanks for sharing, though. Best, Beth

Your photography is outstanding. You have inspired me for over ten years with your beautiful garden, pond, and the different seasons in your garden.
My roses and peonies are so beautiful this year. I am waiting until the pollen finishes dropping all the yellow snow. Then I will put my patio pads on the furniture for our summer fun.
Thank you for sharing,
