Snowy evening by the pond.
Snowy evening at home. Out by the pond.
Relaxing Holidays by JeanLiPhotography
I went hiking for a bit and all the trails were covered in ice
It’s 56 F (13 C) at my computer desk today, despite the best efforts of the woodstove in the basement. I think I’d better decamp to a warmer room. It’s annoying to be suffering the cold, but it won’t stay cold enough for the pond ice to freeze firmly so we can skate. Like, it’s just cold enough to be miserable, without being cold enough for fun winter sports. There should be some snow tonight or tomorrow, though.
This ^ is what the pond SHOULD look like right now! I got the nicest, cushiest pair of handmedown skates two years ago and I’ve only gotten to use them a couple of times.

With a shallow pebble edge for wildlife to climb in & out, a tree trunk for the birds to perch on and turf edges which will soften and grow over into the water, we’re very pleased with how the pond has taken shape. We’ll plant it up in the coming months with grasses and lilies, as well as oxygenating plants.
Finally I got around to properly digging out the pond during the summer lockdown period, and then filling the pond during the second lockdown in November. I layered the hole initially with plant suppressing material, then some underlay and some carpet I took from the house, and finally a high grade rubber lining. We’re really looking forward to seeing the wildlife that will be attracted to the pond over the coming years.
