...for now, I'm happy with "my" frogs.

YOUR frogs.....Getta load of this guy....
He puts in a little dinky arse of a pond and thinks he owns the world.
Really though, I think it's wonderful your creation has already become their home.

"Dinky arse of a pond"...what a creative use of words. ~smirk~

I'll have you know there is a member here willing to travel pretty far to get to see my "dinky arse of a pond"! So there! :-P



I think it is pretty wonderful too...by the way, I'm up to seven frogs now...and some of them are getting pretty big.

Sorry Dapjwy, couldn't help myself.

I'm OK now. And I too think you've got a great water feature in the making!

And I'll have YOU know if I was anywhere near your pretty wonderful thought of a pond I'd be heading your way to poke Mmmmm pet your seven getting pretty big frogs. That is, if you'd have me as I really DO like your water feature!

I'd hava you.

...but no poking my frogs! I finally did touch one and barely stroked its back, but after they all seem a bit skittish of me. Now it could be they now associate me with the lawnmower...but I think it was my getting too close for comfort. For the most part they still pretty much accept my presence.

If you are ever coming out near me, let me know, and I'll do my best to make sure we can meet up.

Good, glad you got it out of your system.

Thank you...I do think I'll be very pleased once I get it all figured out.

I'm just wondering how much I'll get done once I go back to work. Originally, I thought it would be a three-year project. I planned the uppermost pond in the first year, the streambed in the next, and the large pond some time in the future--hopefully the third year. However, aside from hiding the liner in a few spots, the upper pond is done, a second pond is partially finished, and I began digging out part of the streambed.

I'd love to finish the stream this year and have only the large pond to figure out. I don't have a liner for that yet, so that could be a deciding factor as to when that part of the project gets done.

It's amazing how much progress one can do once your body's adjusted itself to the work load.

I know that I was able to move a huge "mini-boulder" that I wouldn't have been able to move had I not done all the prior digging and lifting.
