Spring comes to Jeziorki; pond path unfolds

With weather gorgeous again, I walk home from W-wa Dawidy station to see what progress has taken place around out ponds. It's going well. The blue sky, the flowering plants, the trees coming into leaf - all extremely lovely (only sore point is all the litter left around here by the unmindful). Within a few weeks the path running along the east side of the pond will be complete.

Below: from the top of a pile of stones destined for the path, I get a better perspective looking south - and look - there will be a small sandy beach here!

Below: view from the beach, looking across to the backs of houses on ul. Trombity. Just six weeks ago, I was walking over this stretch of water, still frozen.

Below: looking northward from the top of a small heap of stones; to the left of the pic you can see a group of anglers who've come by van for some evening fishing.

Below: the tranquility of Jeziorki on a spring evening. The new path alongside the middle pond.

Below: bonus pic - our office windows were washed today, removing the grime and smoggy particles that had settled on the glass over the winter. Silhouettes of the cleaners projected sharply on the blinds.
