The Beauty of Water
Today I'm sharing some photos of our pond along with some inspiring quotations about water. Having a pond is a wonderful and rewarding experience. Sure, it's a lot of work at times, but the payoff is worth it. It's so peaceful and relaxing listening to the splashing water. Every day is different and the pond is a whole world in itself. We enjoy watching life unfold there and all the creatures that call it home. In the spring, the toads sing and sometimes leopard frogs visit to leave their next generation. Pink, white and yellow water lilies bloom daily. And discovering a new baby fish is fun.
"Water is the driver of Nature." Leonardo da Vinci
“When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?” Ralph Marston
"All the water that will ever be is, right now." National Geographic
"And all the air is filled with pleasant noise of waters." Henry Wordsworth
"I have left almost to the last the magic of water, an element which owing to its changefulness of form and mood and colour and to the vast range of its effects is ever the principal source of landscape beauty, and has like music a mysterious influence over the mind." Sir George Sitwell
"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water." Loran Eisely
"Water is the best of all things." Pindar
I hope you enjoyed this little visit to my pond!
