Reflections at Pond's Edge

Today has been a day of soul-searching, self-reflection, and pondering. Fortunately, I have gardens that are conducive to those activities.

The fish obliged me as I sat at the pond's edge and sprinkled food flakes into the water for them to eat. Dexter, on his leash, sprawled out behind my chair while Tom Tom wandered along his patrol paths sniffing the "message boards" of the felines in the neighborhood. The dragonflies are still out and about in our climate, so they came out and zipped back and forth in a canopy above me. I've managed to go completely bug bite free this summer thanks to those beloved dragonflies.

Sometimes, one just needs to take time and think. And that's exactly what I did.

  1. I'm especially glad that we haven't had any mosquitoes for years now...they were such a bother in those pondless years...and no risk of west nile virus! Thank you!!

  2. Sometimes we just need those thoughtful spots, don't we? You're so fortunate to have one. The sunflower is gorgeous, by the way!

  3. I love your sunflower. A restful, thoughtful day by the pond is a wonderful thing. Dragonflies are great insects to have around.

  4. I can just invision your place, I think I am getting complete picture not just on the pictures but sensing peace and beauty of the nature. How cool, anna :)
    btw mosquitoes been eating me alive this year, at some point they chased me out the forest lol
