As some of you know this summer we had a pond made on our property by Ducks Unlimited and we are enjoying it so much.In the beginning it looked like a giant mud puddle but now it has filled up more and the muddiness has started to settle.

We have planted some serviceberry trees, viburnum,grasses etc around it and in the spring hope to plant some white flowering crabapple trees.I love how the trees reflect into the pond.

A mirror image of our house.
My husband built a little dock for us to sit and enjoy the view and the sounds of nature.

We had our first duck visit us this week-hopefully he will bring friends the next time! It was so peaceful watching him swim around the pond.

It is my new favorite spot for a cup of hot cider or hot chocolate.
Hot chocolate anyone?

Will you have the apple cider or the hot chocolate?
On a beautiful autumn day it is the perfect place to relax!
Our son gave us a rubber dory to row around the pond on.Our old wooden dory leaks so we have to find a way to fix it -so it is for looks only at the moment.

Hope you have time to sit for a spell!
