Our Wonderful Creek ~ Kerrs CreekThis is one of six little waterfalls my son built for us over the 4th of July weekend. I am waiting for just the right light to capture all six at one time. He worked for two days shoveling silt, pebbles, and heaving huge rocks and boulders. He does this every year, and then the rains come and wash it all away until the next year. It is just wonderful sitting out there and hearing the water running over the rocks.

As a kid in Utah, me and the neighbors would build multiple dams and waterfalls in the irrigation ditch in front of our house.
a shame that it is only temporary, but surely a labor of love.ReplyDelete
These waters are close to your home? Then you are blessed indeed!ReplyDelete
FEELING RATHER DUCKY
Feeling rather ducky?
Here’s what I would do:
Find a pond or puddle,
One that’s right for you;
Take a sturdy life vest,
Strap it on your back;
Jump into the puddle,
Give a little quack!

How nice of your son to do that, but I bet he enjoyed working on it. There is nothing as peaceful or soothing as the sound of water running over the rocks in a stream or creek. Nice place to relax for the afternoon. Mickie :)ReplyDelete
