My Yard - The Good

I had planned on cleaning out my pond and thinning the plants. My poor pond has been so neglected.

 I hadn't paid it any attention so imagine my surprise when I decide to attack it and find it overgrown.  I guess you could call it a water garden.  There are some feeder fish still living in there.  I put some new ones in last year and they survived the winter which was pretty mild. 

When I went to the backside to determine if it was possible to thin it out I was surprised by this pretty bloom.  It was hidden beneath a bunch of lilypads. 

My hydrangea is in full bloom.  Good thing it doesn't need me to show off! 

When I look at my yard it is so easy to see all the weeds and all the work that needs to be done.  Sometimes I just need to stop and look at the beauty that is offered to me even though I did nothing to deserve it.
