Every Thursday, we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm.
Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!
Back on track today after the surprising events of yesterday here in the US.
For today's inspiration, it's a small pond under a large mesquite tree. Where is this pond? Why, it belongs to 2nd Family! It's under their "party tree" which is where we got our idea for our party tree Barnabas. We don't have a pond yet but we might someday. We'll have a BIG one (lake-ish) elsewhere on the property, but as far as small, man-made ponds, this is the kind we like. 2nd Family did this over the course of a weekend a few years back and it's been going ever since.
As you can see, their ducks like it...and so does "Alice", one of their dogs. She can be found lounging around next to it on any given day. They have a pump that recirculates water through that faucet you see and it makes such a great sound when sitting around under the tree.
