Frog pond across the years

This morning it's a cold one.

I thought I'd celebrate the seasons!

We moved here in mid-September, 2010. I've been wrestling with finding photos over the years.

The pond in May, 2014

It's usually full after Spring melt. This is down by half.

Nov. 2014

This was a fun year. Muskrats moved in, as there was lots of food and water.    

Dec. 2014

Lots of critters use the pond. Many simply travel across it!

July 2015

 

2016 a drought

Wetland grasses grew. The frogs disappeared.

 Nov. 2016 

The pond began to fill up in November, 2016. Just a tad.

Happily, the frog pond is filling up. Daisy went skating.


Then we had a meltdown.

It's fascinating to watch things like that change over the years, especially if you can find matching pictures!
