I hope the title to this blog entry is not too misleading. We didn't purposely add a lake to our property but we have had such a melt down of the snow from the spring like weather that the river is up like it normally does in the spring . When this happens, a good portion of our property floods or what I like to call ' we now own a lake'.
This photos was taken as the river was rising. The water you see out front is actually a grassy area. It does make for some wonderful photos of the garden.
What a great week it has been to be able to look out our home window and enjoy the look and feel of living on lake front property. The other day I actually made it out close enough to get a great shot of the ducks who are easily spooked. They were out enjoying the spring like day in our seasonable lake.
This photo by the bird house was the day that it was 60* degrees. We broke local records with those temperature so it is no wonder the 8 inches of snow we had melted so quickly.
It is only February and there is a forecast that includes 3" - 5" of snow for the weekend. Gotta love winter in the Midwest.
