Do You Have Silver Ties?

An old friend and I have recently resumed our friendship, due to our moving very close to each other. We consider it a Providential thing.

I was enchanted with this property of ours, especially the many springs on it, one of which was dammed up to cause this very beautiful pond:

Our Pond
Our Pond

My friend moved to her place partly because of the amazingly beautiful creek running through the lower half of it:

My Friend's Creek
My Friend’s Creek

Recently, though, we learned that my tiny tributaries, including the run-off from my pond, all flow into her creek via this very small rivulet:

Coming down from my pond

The End.


I hope you enjoyed these three shots of the silver thread that connects two friends.

    1. And to hunters, water moccasins, and black widows? It can be a trade, but I do love it here and you are welcome to visit any time! 🙂 You could stay in my guest house! 🙂

        1. Yes, it’s a rustic thing, just cinder blocks with a bare concrete floor, and it leaks a bit during downpours, but the view, as you said…has ruined me for camping and going to retreats. 😀
          Someday I want to invite all my blog pals to come visit and stay overnight. But we’re so spread over the whole world, who could come?
