Pond water control

 I  took these photos on Saturday near the trail at Harmony Junction..

 It seems to be a lot of little dams to control the flow of water from the pond. The green on the sides is hydro seeding where the grass seed is mixed with water and fertilizer.

The water table must be still low as there no water flowing from this artisan well.
Cloudy all day and a cool 10 and some what windy. The Monday evening group cycled from the Farmers Market to Winsloe and back.

 This old Plymouth was there as well, someone said it is 64 years old.

 The maple trees are starting to change colour.

It was sunny at 22 but windy, my guess it was gusting to 50 km/h at times.
At noon I cycled around Charlottetown and the wind was right in my face coming home.
