Pondering Life is a Pond! On June 10, 2013January 20, 2016 By cindy knokeIn Flowers, HOLLER HAPPENINGS, MY PHOTOGRAPHS Do you ever think your life is like a pond, with water lillies, and visiting friends? Well, if your life is not much like a pond, why not visit a quiet one? You just might find some peace there. Cheers to you from the peaceful Holler pond~ Share this:pinterestEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

fabulous shots Cindy…your pond looks wonderful, looks as though the ducks are enjoying themselves…
Lucky ducks!!! Thank you 🙂
WOW! Cindy, these are fantastic! I’ve never been fond of ducks, not since an entire group of them jumped me at a lake and stole my sandwich, but, you know what? After seeing these photos, I think I might give ducks a second chance. This are beautiful! 🙂
Are you sure it wasn’t geese that jumped you? They can be very aggressive. People use them as guards. Ducks are more wimpy. Swans can be super aggressive. Thanks for your comments Sahm & cheers to you~
Nope it was definitely ducks. One was called Daffy, the other Donald, and they had a whole crew called the Duck Tales…
I’m kidding, I’m kidding. I appear to be in a bit of a juvenile mood at the moment… I love ducks. Cheers to you, Cindy!
Hilarious! Juvenile moods are always good~ 🙂
All your pictures are so colorful and just beautiful. A very peaceful spot.
Much appreciated! Thank you & cheers~
I love the color of the ducks from their head up to the necks.They are so shiny.
Thanks for the post Cindy.
Thank you Ranu. Yes the lucky males once again get to sport all the dazzle!! 🙂
There are many ducks and they are quite colorful. Holler has it all!
No deer because of too many coyotes! Cheers my friend~
Loved those splashy ducks!
Aren’t they cute! I love it when they do this too. Thank you & cheers~
Muchas gracias mu amiga!
Have you ever counted how many species you have in the Holler!! I have lost track – each one of your photos are full of life and colour.
Aww, so nice! Thanks Rebecca. I should try and do a count. Good idea~
Awesome captures! What a beautiful pond.
Merci beau coup!
Those lovely emerald green heads on the mallards are quite spectacular in the afternoon light aren’t they? Lovely photos, makes me miss the North American duckies…almost! 🙂
Yes they are quite handsome and happy! Cheers & thanks~
Loved these. 🙂
So glad! Cheers to you~
There is a Monet-esque feel to these wonderfully artistic photographs.
Very kind and very appreciated~
I love mallards. Beautiful shots. 😉
Merci beau coup~
I welcome you to the Redo site! Someone with your background can have a good bit to add in comment on many topics we offer. Thank you for visiting.
Look forward to it and thank you~
The pleasure is mine, and our readers! We’ll be hearing from you soon I hope.
They don’t ‘think’ it’s paradise, they KNOW it’s paradise.
Funny!! Thank you~
Beautiful pond!! I love the pic where the duck is splashing the water up!! Hugz!
Back to you X2!
The depth of focus on the first shot is slightly unsettling. It almost looks Photoshopped until you look more closely.
The ducks are going mad over here too. And the Canada geese. Amazing how fast the goslings grow
Oh I love Canadian Geese. Aren’t they fun to watch marching after their mum? Plus they have personalities on top of good looks~
I have a friend who’s terrified of Canada geese. Her 15 month old daughter quite happily chases them.
I’m not biblically ept, but wasn’t there a passage about, “a babe shall lead us….” or something to that effect. Fears are interesting puzzles in our psyches. They are causal, but not causally linked. She’ll need to deputize her daughter as the official goose handler…..Now my son is tagging rattlesnakes. Go figure…….
Liebste Cindy das sind ja wunderschöne Seerosenfotos und dann noch die Enten einfach super fotografiert herrlich finde ich ganz toll wünsche dir einen sonnigen schönen Tag liebe Grüße Klaus
Sie sind so nett und Ihre Kommentare sind willkommen! Danke ~ 🙂
Your pictures are really beautiful, each one!
I love the water lilies! They always remind me of one of my favourite movies and beautiful waltz .
It is very romantic, here is the link:
How lovely! Thank you~
Lovely day then! Swap it for our gray skies, wind and rain?!:)
I would swap in a heartbeart and love it to pieces. We are in extreme fire danger now. Hot & dry after a year of draught. Terrible~
Stay safe… I have heard horrible reports about such fires when they strike…
Absolutely stunning shots, Cindy. Those water lilies are magnificent. 🙂
At times – at places like this – I wish I were a duck! 🙂
Hilarious & thank you!
You have captured the beauty and peacefulness of the pond, birds, and water lilies. Thank you for sharing, Cindy!
Thank you for appreciating~
So lovely, Cindy… Welcome home!
Mil grazi Bette. The butterflies are here too. Matilda would love it!
They are daffy though~
so fresh and vibrant! I grew up near a marsh area and it was beautiful–maybe a trifle more swampy…:)
Marsh’s are awesome for the birds they attract~
It’s a beautiful spot, Cindy. Do you spend much time there. I know I would. It looks so peaceful.
I don’t because it is a far trek…..thank you Paul. Look forward to seeing how your new house is progressing~
Loved the pond!
Eunice, send me an email when you have a free moment (ha!) and tell me how your doing!!
lol if I can find your email 🙂 that was so long ago 🙂
What an amazing colors 🙂
So happy you like them! Merci beau coup~
Missed this first time round. Sunny Afternoon… tra laa… RH
“Cause I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime.”
It is Paradise, Cindy 🙂
Awww. Thank you. Except for the rattlers!!
