Before I begin I thought it would
be appropriate to tell you a little bit about myself.
I believe you will find me like anyone else in our Society.
My ponding history can be wrapped up in one sentence,
"It began as a pre-formed water feature and has
grown into a feature, and hobby, of apocalyptic proportions."
Well, maybe its not that
bad, but on some days it certainly feels that way. Like
you, my husband and I have our own "Eden"
in the yard. We spend countless hours there, not just
maintaining it, but enjoying it as well. At times I
feel like Snow White, waiting for butterflies and dragonflies
to light on my finger. Other times I feel like Mother
Koi. I must be a Mother Koi, why else would koi rush
to the ponds edge when they see me? Perhaps it has something
to do with the cheerios in my hand? Regardless, I have
a passion like you, for the natural beauty of gardens,
crystal waters and wildlife.
I am now your Librarian on duty!
Being the library gatekeeper is a welcome assignment
and I have been enjoying it very much. Our library is
an additional resource of information and our members
should take advantage of all that it offers.
