Lots of water

So we finally got some rain for a few days. Now that’s its stopped raining, I can report that the new work on the little pond has really helped it collect more water. This first shot is from last Wednesday when it had just started raining. The water and tadpoles are moving freely between the two parts of the pond.

The water level is high enough so that it is even one both sides of the former divide.

The next shot is from today after more rain on Friday and Saturday. Woohoo! The pond is much deeper now. Of course it rained, but if I had not dug the creek it would not be this deep. I think we have enough water to get us through the summer now without me having to use the pump to try and save it. I probably can get water right from here for the gardens without worry.

Water is so deep now, the former divide is barely visible.

Well, not exactly without worry. There are all those tadpoles in the pond that must not end up in the watering buckets. At least all the pond critters are fascinating to sit and watch.

I apologize for not posting for a few days. I was having technical difficulties with spam comments. I think I have it under control now.
