Pond Scenes


Wild Pond

We have several small wild ponds that we leave for native birds and wildlife.  We have planted trees and shrubs around them and put up nesting boxes--like this wood duck nest on a metal pole.  Along with attracting many varieties of birds, these ponds are home to large numbers of frogs and other native fauna.
