Our fabulous weather continues. :-)
The daffodils are in full bloom.
I spent the day in the yard, cleaning and filling bird baths, some weeding, and washing the car. I wanted to stay out of Craig's way as he did our tax returns. And I'm happy to say we're getting a nice refund. :-)
And to answer a question......
"So do you have to clean the pond out every spring? Do you have a well to
refill it, or do you have to pay for "city" water? Am I being too
I don't drain the pond every year. Just about every 3-4 years. In between, I just scoop out as much leaves and debris as I can.
No well, I use city water. Craig estimated it holds 5500 gallons. Fortunately, Lansing owns the water facility, and the water rates are very reasonable. :-) It'll probably run me $5 worth of water for the pond. Our water bill is usually around $12 a month, but if I water a lot during a dry summer, it's gone as high as $60.
And don't worry. If you're too nosey, I'll tell you. :-)
By the way, would my readers prefer me to answer a question left in my comments, with a comment, a personal e-mail, or in a post like this?
And with the great weather, I fired up the grill for dinner and cooked pork cutlets with baked potato and marinated zucchini.
Now time for my shower, and wake up Craig.
