Not Snow Again

It is hard to believe the weather report after we had a pretty nice weekend. Tomorrow could bring another three inches of snow. These pictures are from last weekend when we had 2 days in the low 50's. The best in way too long. I took the opportunity to do a little pond housekeeping cleaning out leaves and algae. It is amazing how fast the algae grows when you have a couple of sunny days. And the sun is now noticeable higher in the sky as we slowly move toward spring (obviously very slowly with the weather report). You have to be very careful when fishing out leaves - I accidentally caught 2 giant tadpoles and quickly returned them to the pond.
