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 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!
