And The Water Flows

 Hocus Pocus....and the water flows.  Last night we cleaned the creek of leaves and debris, flipped the switch and let the water run.

 Teddy came down and looked at the upper pond.

 Oh wow mama....this looks good.

 Yes Yes water is back!

 It tastes so good.

 The middle pond.

 The lower, largest pond.  See that black box?  It is usually covered with a rock.  This is where the automatic water feed and the pump is.  It pumps the water from the lower pond all the way up to the top pond and then it flows back down again.

 Just as the sun came up this morning, I planted these okra and peppers.  I love fresh okra!

 We are supposed to get big storms today.  We desperately need rain but I sure hope we don't get the hail they are predicting.

 I picked a big basket of chard this morning and made greens/beans and sausage with it and took it to the shelter.

The fish are very happy to have their waterfall working.  It also sounds wonderful.

I want a hill in my garden too, so I can have such a great water fall! I wonder if I can afford to build one :-) :-) :-)

I think I'll drive to the pet store tomorrow and buy a couple of koi carps, I need something in my small pknd that eats plants, they thrive in there :-)

Nova is much, much better this evening :-) She has just chased Sune around the garden for quite some time :-)

Have a great day!

I love the sound of running water. So very peaceful. Happy Mother's day.
Nothing sounds so peaceful and serene as tinkling water flowing over rocks.

So lovely, and a perfect place for relaxing. Yummy meal for the shelter!
Lovely and peaceful...I love visiting your beautiful home.

The stone steps take me back to one of my most cherished childhood memories... the stairs near our summer cottage that led down a steep hill to the lake. We only rented our cottage each summer but it was always "Little Bea" in Powers Lake, WI.

Absolutely beautiful. As I have said, Teddy has great taste! Can you believe we need rain too??!! We are having to water the garden.
Your garden is beautiful especially the water

Hoping for clear skies desperately need to weed and plant
There is nothing more serene than a waterfall. Just beautiful.

Beautiful water fall and pond. I love this water source and rock garden. Your vegetables looks amazing. Give Teddy a scratch behind the ears for me.

Seriously, whenever I see your garden pics it makes me think of the secret garden, one of my favorite movies as a kid. It's so magical and beautiful, it's like a whole other world :)
