3 Ponds and Bait

Sunday, Honey and I took a stroll over to the neighbors property.  This is where Honey goes fishing when he just wants a few minutes away… I’ve not ever been to this pond. So I grabbed my camera. Honey wanted to see how low it was getting.

“Jerry’s Pond” You can see by the picture here and the one below…It’s pretty low. Honey says about 30%…

You can also see that it looks like a lovely Fall setting. But no… this is  foliage all dried up; from the ravages of a severe drought we’ve had this year.

 The ‘Far Pond’. This pond had three areas… The two pictured above and this area where the bees where~

Pond life.   This wild plant had beautiful blue flowers as you can see; but there was a terrible thorn hidden under the leaves.  The bumble bees didn’t seem to mind.

The “Little Pond” closest to our house. More like dried cracked earth.     
Lastly, one of my favorite parts about our little excursion ,back at “Jerry’s Pond” ~
If you’ve read my blog at all over the summer, then you know the terrible blight that has been put upon us…fall potatoes-3 ponds- bees 016

Exhibit “B”--- the only good thing that could come of a grasshopper.
Aren’t those ripples in the pond gorgeous?  I truly hope that little fish enjoyed his snack!  I. Really. Do.  {smile}
God Bless you and Thanks for reading.

We have grasshoppers everywhere too, even little teeny tiny ones. The lawn jumps when you walk. I need to let those chicks out to eat them.

I hope you get a lot of rain and fill up those ponds again. I wish we had them, at best our culvert fills up when it rains too hard.

With the chickens free ranging, we cut our grasshopper population down. Same with crickets and other pesky bugs. Thanks for sharing the pong pictures.

Love the ripples on the pond! That grasshopper met his fate! :) Hope you get some rain soon!
