In the spring and summer, I keep a planter of impatiens here.
It must be the perfect place for them because they always thrive.
The Hubby bought this last week.
I wonder if he will catch anything?
And he bought this today...isn't it cute?
Kmart has their yard stuff on clearance so he is in heaven!
Mr. Frog has lived at our pond for many years.
Our daughter made it when she took ceramics
at the rec dept when she was in 3rd-4th grade.
She is 25 now, so that tells you how old he is!
The palms are tall and strong and green!
This piece of driftwood has been around for a long time.
It came from the marsh close to my SIL's house.
There's more impatiens in the hanging baskets.
And a small gardenia plant that Hubby
rooted from our bigger one is blooming.
When the pump is running to aerate the water,
we have a little waterfall.
I love the way it sounds...so sooothing!
The upper pond is full of water hyacinths right now.
And they are blooming...lovely!
The water isn't clear enough right now to really see the fish.
That's for another post!
The pond is a little work, but it has brought a lot of enjoyment.
Our grands like feeding the fish and sometimes...when they are feeling really brave...
they will let the fish bump their hands!
I think it makes our back yard a little more special!
