Just what is at its lower end...
It is hard to compete with someone elses imagination. I hope I can at least satisfy what I see in *my* mind's eye. I do want some vegetation to help blend it in and also hide where the stream begins... Eventually I think I can achieve something that will statisfy my least I hope I can.

There is more of a slope beyond, then it drops off to a steep hillside. If I make it follow the slope, it should look fine. And I will eventually have shrubs to disguise the drop off (right now there are Japanese honeysuckle there.

(*IF* we were ever able to buy the land behind us, I can envision a waterfall and another pond/wetland at the bottom. )
