Morning Tex oh it is beautiful and your flying friends are going to love it. Bye bye drought thank goodness.. Hug B
It all looks beautifully green
Good morning, I know you got a lot of rain recently probably too much. But, it did make the pond look great. I have not seen the duck weed look red only green. I remember you posting photos when your pond was almost dry? Was that last year? Pretty shots! Have a great Friday and a happy weekend!
The pond is beautiful, both with and without the duckweed./
The red color adds to the charm pond, as long as it is not possessed in its entirety. Regards.
Your pond looks so beauti-full and I'm glad your drought has been pretty well relieved. Such a relief I'm sure. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I'm so glad we had the rain to fill our ponds back up- and glad here that we had a spillway on one end so it didn't get to high! I don't think I am familiar with duck weed- is it algae or a plant? I'll have to go google that! Have a super day!
Is this a good thing or not? Any way to pull it over to the side? I do not know duckweed ...
I don't know a lot about plants. I would hate it if this duck weed would completely cover your wonderful pond!
Where there are ducks there is usually duckweed! It is very prevalent where I live and I understand that duckweed can be a positive pond plant and helps prevent some evaporation.
Beautiful shots of the pond, Tex. Even with the duckweed.
It sure seems to be taking over the pond. Hopefully, as you say, it won't cover all of it. MersadMersad Donko Photography
I wouldn't mind if it would rain again, there is a chance I think.
So glad the drought is mostly over for you... fingers crossed the duckweed doesn't take over!
Well at least the drought broke though duckweed might only be good for the ducks....:)
wow, the pond looks great. i remember a couple years ago when it was almost dry, even the orange fence was out of the water
the airport in Houston registered rain for 23 out of 31 days in May.
When I see even the stock ponds looking full, it is interesting that we had gotten used to the dry look. So refreshing to see the water rising. Have a great weekend.
I do hope you're right and the drought is over for Texas. We are now officially in a "drought" since everything is anomalously dry because of the lack of snowpack. But compared to California we're doing fine. :-)
Your pond is so large, and so close to your deck ... watching the life out there has to be better than television. Glad it's been refilled by rain. Hopefully the ducks will munch the duckweed?
Beautiful pool shots and nice reflections to go along!
It is amazing what a little rain can do!
Hi Tex, Neat photos of the pond. Wow, I think it looks bigger in these photos than I've ever noticed before. Have a friend near Granbury who says Lake Granbury is up about 5 feet over the last few months. Sure glad to see the drought mostly erased.
Great shots. So lush!
How big is that pond? It might be a lake in New Jersey.
I never heard of that weed, but it is pretty & I`m sure your flying friends will love sifting through it. Lovely reflections, & have a great weekend, phyllis in Pa
With your photo sills, you make even a duck pond look good. Looks like a place the mosquitoes would love.
That is so pretty. I hope a lot of ducks will eat the duck grass so it won't become a problem.Have a great weekend Theresa.Hugs,JB
It looks lovely, lush and green! I hope our five year drought will change this fall.
The first picture of the pond is so beautiful. A shame it cannot be like that all year long. Some day maybe I can say that our drought is over also.
The duckweed is such a pretty colour!
Always a problem in continuous sunlight - algae blooms and rapid duckweed spread. Hope it doesn't get too bad.
Lovely shots of the pond...Know TX needed the rain but I'm sure you wished it hadn't come all at once.
What a lovely pond! I'm sure it looks even lovelier with the amount of rain that you've had this year!!
oooooo t, it's beautiful!! that first image is just perfect!!!i like the tree/stick, it is perfect for perching....the pond is larger than i thought!!!
Your pond looks so lovely! Glad for all the rain. The last photo is so beautiful!
A fine sequence on nature's production of Duck Weed. I'm glad to see the pond look so full of water.
That 1st shot is particularly beautiful, Tex!
We're investing in skeeter spray here too. May was our rainiest on record.
How wonderful that your drought has broken. I would love to just sit and gaze at your pond. xo Laura
Duck Weed terrible stuff...it will smother out a pond! Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.comhttps://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/sherlock-boomer
Pretty tho!!! Weed and all.It's so nice to see water where it should be around my part of Texas these days, but I fear the heat will dry things up once again.I too had 'pond reflections' for the weekend.
Beautiful pond, everything is green. The reflection is beautiful.
A beautiful pond!
Wow!! The pond is full! It looks so nice. I am so glad your drought is finally over. We have heat now too. We have had some nice thunder and lighting and rain storms. More like the Midwest, than California. I am pretty happy about the change.
Good news about the drought. The pond looks great!
Lovely still water reflections. Great calmness in your photos.
The pond is looking very serene and lovely! GREEN, too!
That looks like a healthy pond to me.
i'm glad some places are benefitting from all the rain in lieu of the devestation in other areas. could you ask your people in texas to build a pipe to california and share some of the water?have a wonderful weekend mi amiga
A lot of greenery, color and wetness. Fabulous pics!
Lovely setting in Poland we rarely experienced drought
I'd never heard of duckweed, but now I'm wondering if that's the "scum" that's becoming so prominent on the lake at Ouabache State Park that we visit so frequently. I'm going to have to take a closer look at it. The pond looks wonderful and healthy in that first shot.
Wow, what beautiful images and reflections. Have a great weekend. Jo
beautiful. hope it doesn't get dry again for you.
Beautiful reflections Have a lovely weekend.
Very nice reflections. Glad you have a break from drought.
Beautiful! The pond must attract so much wildlife!
Oklahoma has also been glad for all the recent rain. They're out of drought too now! Everything does look really lush.
wonder if my comment got through - sometimes I can't "veriify the bread, or what have they" because it keeps jumping up and down - anywaysAm happy for TX that the drought is over - it must have undoubtedly effected the farmers! Can't recall every having seen blooming duckweed:) Have a great weekend!
Duck weed, years ago I worked at a hospital and a young lady came in with a rash, and us locals usually called it " Duck itch"... there was a young Dr there from overseas, and he asked " What is that? I haven't heard of "duggitch" before"!!! We tried so hard not to laugh. Your pond colours are wonderful, love that first one with a curved branch reflection.
Duck Weed??? I had to look it up.What will creation think up next - and, i wonder why this is blamed on ducks??? ya know . . I REALLY like visiting your blog.(If i knew how to put a smiling face here, I would)-g-
Here in England we moan when it rains a lot but we'd sure miss it we had no rain for years, maybe even weeks.
Whatever the color, I envy your having a pond! :-)
Looks like a mosquito breeding ground to me. May be time to call in the airstrikes. :-)
Wow - it looks great! :)xoxo
Glad to see that pond even though all that rain brought tough times to Texas. 90s you say. We're in the 80s here and I've had enough.
Beautiful pond! We heard about your storm all the way out here in California. lol We had a small rain a few days ago but we are still in drought mode. Rain Dancing for us is welcome. lol
Love the pond, and is it called duck weed because they like swimming in it, or because they like to eat it, or some other reason?
The pond looks absolutely vibrant, even with the duck weed (didn't know that term before). I'm glad the Texas drought finally ended. Apparently, one is in the offing for Vancouver, and there are those who feel it could last for years if we don't take steps to preserve the water we have now. Hard to believe, but for sure, this past winter barely deserved the term "winter" at all. No complaints about that, but I'm trying now to be less wasteful
Afternoon, lovely looking pond, so pretty. So wonderful to have your own pond.Blessings Francine.
So beautiful pond. Liked lots of greens and reflections. Especially on your first shot.
Never heard of duck weed, can you scoop it out?
Very nice pond !
your pond is so pretty! did you take the orange fence out? love your piece of paradise. :)
I love the sky's reflection in the water.
NO wonder the Whistlers love your place!
Rain wonderful rain.Nice photos.
The pond looks great. Nice to have water nearby :)
What a difference a big rain can make. we've been getting rain this week and it's great as we're really dry.
Everything looks so lush!
So lush, and so beautiful! I love your pond.
Love your healthy looking pond, so green and lush.
The drought is over! The rain dance worked. Beautiful!!!!!
It is beautiful. I know it has been low so low, what a blessing to all who needed rain badly.If that a fish whirl is picture number four??
Oh,those reflections are stunning.
LOVE that first shot! Is duck weed dangerous? I'm not familiar with it.
Lovely pond with lush greens and your lake is very beautiful.
Very nice views of the pond, beautiful reflections!
Good to see the pond full!
Wow, nice full pond! Time for those Whistlers and Turtles to get to work on that Duckweed before it gets out of control.
That's quite the bloom! So nice to be past the drought. :)
our duckweeds' are green, I think.
On my trip last week through Central Texas every single one of our state's great rivers are full and wider than I've ever seen them.
What a treat it must be to actually see a pond this year . . .No drought . . .I have to check out " duck weed!" I hope it doesn't take over either . . .
The pond is beautiful. So glad the drought is over for us. Hope the duck weed takes a break. CM
Such pretty reflections off the pond. I sure hope our drought breaks this coming winter. It's bad.
So glad the drought is busted in your bit of country... here too in Missouri!I am not familiar with duck weed but I think it would choke off the oxygen for anything living in the pond. We use grass carp and a few ducks around here to get rid of algae bloom and some peeps use copper sulfate.Good Morning, Tex!I commented on the previous post as Rural Rambles, my old Blogger name... :)
Thank goodness for rain ...Pond looks great.All the best Jan
It is pretty, and what a relaxing place to enjoy too. Your reflections are incredible too.
now, that's a welcome sight. i'm green with envy. lol!your pond looks heavenly.happy weekend~ xoxo
The pond looks beautiful!
Goodness, what causes this? Do you have it every year? Or is it growing due to the rain/heat?
Everything looks so beautiful and green and your pond looks very full.
Beautiful. I love !!
It does look good! Hopefully, the drought status stays erased for a while.
It is nice to see so much water, but not so much duckweed. Hopefully it will behave!
Your pond is so beautiful. I love that you share all the wildlife it attracts with us.
Beautiful view of the pond. I love the reflections.
