Ha ha.

I've definitely got the stones for it.

...I've been collecting them from around the yard for years. Still, I probably need more.

Havalotta,

Do you recognize this piece of driftwood?
Planning a Streambed, Pond, and Possibly a Bog-psx_20180825_000434.jpg

I have been meaning to post about this for a while. I am still tweaking things, so this isn't quite its final spot, but probably pretty close to it. Still gotta do some more digging...and a LOT more to hide the liner...but I think it will be an awesome addition to the pond.

That the one I bought you? Fit's right in and being used already! I'm so hppy.....
What a little fatty. Lickins must be pretty plentiful. Way to go... And that's only the beginning of the show such a water feature brings.

Yes, I'm glad you recognized it.

Lib was right...it wouldn't work as I intended (as an addition to my snag). It is perfect in this setting though.

Yep, the frogs seem to like it...and they are getting big fast..

Thank you again. I love it!

Oh yaaaa
GREAT place for it!

Deer (and rabbits) been keeping me busy building fences....Hate hate hate to do that around my beds but if that's what it's going to take to keep them somewhat out, that's what I'll have to do and I'm in the CITY!

Then on to thinning the fall bloomers...Haahahahahha I'm sitting here laughing right now thinking of falling bloomers.

Two days of rain and inside projects (like dusting and thinning the clutter) was a welcome break so tis time to crack the whip and go out front to work upon my never getting around to it project near the entry. Well at least we keep picking along. Eventually.... things will be complete.

Shoot I did everything but... out there yesterday.
I just realized I have to call up a Company to move a sprinkler head previous to my endeavor.
Smack dab right in the middle of where I plan to take my next step

I guess there is always something. Sorry to hear that you have to delay your project.
