Pond

Fred’s Car

Our yard in 1997 the back was just a holding spot for crap, or at least that is what the previous homeowners used it for.

 

A hummingbird moth on my hummingbird bush, who knew they really worked! Even if it only attracted the insect variety, it was still neat.

 

And the dragonfly nymph was a rescue from a friend’s pond. He evidently made it through the winter. Too bad he was gone before I got to see the finished dragonfly.

 

Our Pond

Our piece of tranquility right in our own back yard.

(of course it has to be Sharpie-proof since it is his favorite cooling spot)

 

A lot of hard work elbow grease, 2 decks a pond and some flagstone and Voilà serene retreat. DOGS WELCOME!

 

Building the pond with a 7’ round cattle watering trough as the main event. Elevated above the freeze line and retaining wall built around with room for planting. Oh, and a waterfall.

Don’t worry Paul, I have a vision in my head ;-)

 

Well if we’re building a pond, we should have a deck too.

Ok Paul, whatever you say!

 

Wow, even I was impressed with our work!
