Baby greens and a new pond

Before supper, I thinned half of this bed and had enough greens to make a good-sized salad for each of us. It's thrilling to eat something from my own garden this early in the year.

In other yard news, R dug a hole in the side of the hill below the deck to make a level spot for a small round pond. This will be the summer home for the tropical water lily that's been blooming since Christmas in our bay window and the hardy water lily that is outgrowing its spot in the stock tank water feature.

Here is the pond, filled and reflecting the sunroom.
