Serenity • Conservation • Beauty

🍃🍃🌿🌿🌿ON GOLDEN POND 🌿🌿🍃🍃🍃

Watching the light dancing on the water ...

 listening to the rabbits as they crunch and nibble ... 

a lovely and serene scene as the ducks glide here and there ... 

I wanted to share one more picture taken right before 

the last rays of the sunset said goodbye last night.

The Central Valley in California is one of the only regions in the United States suitable for the 

innovative process of groundwater banking and storage of rainfall. 

What you are looking at is actually 

a groundwater banking facility... a large number of sizable ponds to you and me. 

They rapidly become a nature sanctuary for a variety of birds, ducks, herons, 

and rabbits that live among the wild flowers. 

These ponds add so much beauty, help clean the air, store water, and lower the temperature

 in those areas. 

Personally,  I am grateful for them and I am proud we don't waste our rainfall.

  1. Oh, darling Rie', the older I become the more aware of how every creature on our Earth plays an important role. It makes me happy to see this, the sanctuary-like environment for the little animals and the fowl. Thank you for posting the beautiful images and reminding us to preserve & protect. Sending love,

    1. Marsha, I feel the exact way... it is so important to preserve and protect. Love to you my friend!

  2. There is something gloriously rural about this, and the sunset! The orange hues seems like it wouldn’t be out of place in the Serengeti.
    Water banking is so crucial, I am glad to see it getting the attention it deserves!

    1. Guarnicao, Thank you for coming by and taking a moment to leave a comment. I so agree, water banking is so crucial. All the best.
