Egrets Reading

The Pond is back





We poured water back in the pond today which makes my poet's heart happy because I can now once more hear the sound of water and see the pond through the sliding glass door as I type on my laptop.

There are a few more things to do...some landscaping, transplanting plants that were temporarily moved around during the re-construction, etc. At some point, I'd like to acquire a few more rocks to hide the liner and pump tubing better (the pond is now about twice the size of the original so I've exhausted my rock supply).

But, the water's back in, the mosquito fish are on patrol, and I can hear the mini-waterfall's music again when I'm in the house, so I'm a happy camper. My sons both worked very hard to make this all happen.
