Splash!

After waiting for 10 years, I finally have my pond. Huzzah! *does Snoopy Dance Of Joy* Next up will be fish, I cannot imagine a pond without them. I've missed the fish in my old pond very much as the little whatsits ate out of my hand. That's right, not only am I a cat whisperer and a dog whisperer but a fish whisperer as well. *takes bow* What can I say? I love animals and the feeling, as they say, is mutual.

Congratulations, Yolanda! I know this is something you have wanted to do for a while. It looks great, love the edging you have too. Enjoy!!

Must admit to be going a little green here.. I've got a part work in progress (on & off) wildlife pond needing my attention... one day ;-)

Mm... wondering... fish in your pond with cats in the household? Have you mixed the two before?

You have a great pond here. It looks like and Estate for fish. The Water lily isn't too bad either.

I'm waiting for that nice water feature to turn up! You remember -- the one that will put out the garbage?

How wonderful! I love my pond, and yours is beautiful. I will say that one of the things I did that I now regret is plant cat tails in my pond. Even though they started out as plants in pots, they now "own" about half the pond, completely filling in my shallows. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because my frogs and salamanders use those root masses for wintering over and protection from predators. But if my pond liner sprang a leak I would have to have heavy equipment in order to replace it, I can't see how to get the huge mass of shallow marsh out of the pond otherwise.

How wonderful! so many other benefits from having a pond! Frogs and toads to eat your slugs and snails. Are your cats going fishing there?

Yolanda I'm sure you will have many a serene moment sitting near your pond.Mine was always the place I sat and renewed my spirit.I never did have fish because I knew that I'd become attached to them and if one did not survive our harsh winters I would be upset..pond flowers were the quiet gifts I enjoyed .

Oh my goodness, this is beautiful! So happy that you finally got your pond! It's been awhile since I've visited here. I need to catch up, big time!

By the way, I thought of you when we were in Seattle and saw the monkey puzzle trees. I even bought one. LOL
