I have always wanted a little pond and lately I kept looking at the kiddie pool we had for the ducks thinking it would make a good pond. I even dug the hole and tried it out but it just really didn't look right so I got online and went looking for pond liner. Pond liner is expensive! But there was a little kit on eBay with a pond liner, pump and frog "spitter" and it was only $26.99 with free shipping so I got that. It came in yesterday and I was quite pleased with how nice the frog decoration looked. This morning it was time to get to work on that long wanted pond. I had to dump the pool and dig the hole out more. I know I have mentioned our red clay way too many times but I did get lucky with my choice of the spot because I only ran into one root and since there are woods all around and roots all through the back yard that you can actually see on top of the ground, that was pretty lucky.
It does lean slightly to one side. I am hoping when it rains it will runoff a little spillway that I left at the lower side.
I also want to show you my new fountain that Phil brought home for me. It is broken on the top and someone he was doing a job for didn't want it anymore. I think it is lovely (Excuse how dirty it is. It sits under the trees and the oak trees especially are dropping leaves and tons of acorns this year. I hope to get out to clean it this weekend.
