Pond life - new shoots
The temperature is rising and blossom is out on the cherry tree next to the pond - reflecting white on the water surface. In the shallows the reeds have sprouted new shoots and the Water Mint, Butomus Umbellatus, Pickerell Weed are sending up new shoots from what looks like a wider area than last year, so they must be doing OK. Even the Water lilies have woken up and are sending up new red leaves from the depths searching for the surface.
