Thanks, everyone! That pond is on the farm here. My dad had it built in 1976 to be used to irrigate peanuts out of. It never went dry even while it was being used for irrigation until last fall following two years of severe drought when it went bone dry as seen in the pic. Bountiful rains started in February of this year and have continued throughout the summer and has it filled back to capacity. Here's a pic I took a week or two ago-

I did put fish in it. I put catfish and bluegills in it in March and then bass and grass carp in May. The catfish and bluegills are good eating size now and you can catch all you want right there off the deck. One of my sons and two of his friends are fishing down there right now with plans of having a fish fry tonight.

Nice pond! Nobody dives in with all those tree stumps out there? Who'd know, looking at that tranquility?
Congrats on the B&W. :)

Thanks for the nice comments. Putangi, the stumps are one reason not to dive in, alligators is another.

Great picture and a good eye GaPrime. The fall leaves on the walkway and of course the stumps are an attention getter, and of course, I like anything that makes ya wonder about it. A wonderful entry!!
Bet you were glad to see the rains return.

Beautiful. I'd love to sit there and drown a worm and drink a few cool ones. BTW 3way told me to buy a couple bottles of HIS favorite hooch and come out and he would teach me how to take pics. :nod:
