The fish are waking up now and starting to feed like crazy.  Sorry about the pic quality, but I took most of these late in the day and the lighting was terrible so the pics are a little grainy.  The new guys are schooling with the old guys and everything seems to be going well.  Lilly pads are coming up and stuff...

um, this isnt the most flattering time of year for the pond since its the Fall now.  All of the flowers are out of bloom, and the greens are turning to browns.  Ill try to scope out a good vantage point in the next few days and snap a pic or two.  Thanks for the interest.

In the meantime, do I have a pic of my (pup) dog's butt at the ponds edge:

Things are starting to get going now. I woulda posted pics but my UV clarifier bulb in my filter is not working (1 month after warranty expiry), so the pond is a little murky. Once I get it fixe, Ill put up some more pics :)

 Ponds are awesome.

My dad just had to fill his in because my parents are trying to sell the house and the realtor convinced them that it would sell better without it because people with young children would be scared away due to the possiblity of drowning. I think he should have let the new homeowners decide if they wanted it or not.

Yeah I can see the point. I know Im in this house for the next 5 years at least. When I move, I can apply what I know now to build a new pond. The next one is going to be insane. I dont give two shits about resale!!


I think that for me, this pond provides so much relaxation and amusement. Theres nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the waterfall in the spring or fall when my bedroom window is open. Anyway, first nice day Ill snap some pics... :)

 Well its summer #3 now and things are starting to fill in.  Crazy how quickly stuff grows.  I will post more when I get more floating food and I can get the fish to the surface and also when the lilly opens.  It is not in bloom right now but looks like it will be soon, I can see a new bulb coming up...

Picked up a new stone lantern this year...

The lotus pads are impermeable, so the water pools on them and they look pretty neat

When I first built the pond, I put three bull tadpoles in.  Now all day (especially in early summer) these fuggers are sooo loud that my neighbors can all hear them croaking.
