Great pond! I love the lily! Where in your garden is this situated?

Hi Fig, I have it on the east side of our home. I have always loved how nature does her work. SO I try hard to give it that natural appeal. It is not out in the opened, but next to the house and patio so we can enjoy the sounds of the water falling from the small waterfall. We have the pump out now and replaced it with a bubbler. It keeps the pond from freezing completely so the gasses can escape from rotting leaves of fish waste when the pond freezes.

Hi Chief! Yes we did. When I am walking in the woods or see interesting things, I collect them to keep it looking as natural as possible. It is a pre formed pond, if we did it again, I would get the linning and make it deeper and bigger too. I have frogs and one of them we hand fed all summer long. It was the weirdest thing, it would actually jump out of the water and sit next to you waiting for a worm. so I would get up dig up a worm and hand feed it. I tell you that frog was spoiled. I never had anything like that before. I will post a picture of him too!
