The last time I was home I put some lily pads in our pond. This pond was once a muddy cow pond. Now it's just muddy. We hope that adding plants like these will help to clean up the water.
The lily's are now blooming, and they really do brighten up the pond.
We also discovered that our pond is supporting a lot of baby frogs.... I lost count at 896 so I can't tell you exactly how many. It's exciting to see that nature is bringing more creatures into our lives.
