Be round with my skates later,lol.
Watch Bonnie, when ours was frozen last year Fudge stood in the middle of it wagging his tail,scared me to death, couldn't look, luckily it held him and he was fine, scary though.
Do you have fish in your pond Dawn? ours still seem to be swimming around under the ice, keep going out with a kettle of warm water to make a hole in ice for them, have got a ball floating in it which usually helps but its so flippin cold its frozen in the ice.

It does look big Dawn and very cold , is that your willow arch I can see in the distance ?

20 Dec, 2009

 

Hello Amy, yes that's the willow arch. Charlotte walked on the pond this afternoon but Bonnie was not having any of it. She just kept running round in circles on the edge. She obviously has more sense than Charlotte, ha ha.
The pond is 50 metres long :-) It does look alot bigger with the vegetation dying off.

Looking forward to seeing a photo of you doing a Torvill and Dean, Dawn :)
That's not a pond, its a lake! Beautiful.

It is enormous Dawn, it is more a lake lol

20 Dec, 2009

 

Gee beat me to it, re the lake thing...........do you have to put waders on to get to the middle?

20 Dec, 2009

 

What I keep telling Dawn .. Gee and DD i have a pond but you couldnt skate on it like this ..

20 Dec, 2009

 

Torville and Dean - more like the sugar plum fairy, lol. I regularly don my waders Dotty when I go in and remove my bulrushes. We have raised stepping stones to the island, not as I go over very often, frightened I might tread on a grass snake.

lovely photo, you can appreciate the size at this time of year.

Thanks Seaburn, one good things with this cold weather is that it keeps the bulrushes and reeds at bay.

Looks lovely Dawn, cutting the Reed mace would keep me busy on these cold days. Burning it up in small amounts will return the ash and charcoal for new growth next year.

That's a good idea Bob - I need to get out of the house and get some jobs done, its just sooooo cold.

I was just looking at your picture of the pond you put on here in Oct but took in 2003.....it looks more frozen now than then!

You're right Potty, I cant remember it being so frozen for so long.
