April 15, 2016
The two jolly workmen finished and filled the pond today. The electric pump is not yet installed, but the pond lies as a pond does, and I am going to keep track of it to see how long it takes to populate. If past experience holds, there should be striders on the water in the morning. Emptied the old ponds, the ones in watering troughs and wash basins, with a maximum of effort, bearing their rich waters to the new plantings bucket by bucket. I should be happier— I’ll know how to feel when the first wake crosses the still water.
