These are pictures of our front pond. On July 4th we began digging to extend it a little. Our ponds are always evolving, hopefully not devolving. Several years ago we saw the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon. That has always been such an inspiration.

It’s beautiful Gerri :). I bet it makes you feel lovely and cool in the hot summer months just to look at it. There is something about water that is both cooling and soothing at the same time. Looks like hard work there and I don’t envy Chris at all 😉
I actually started the digging. I thought I could accomplish it all myself since the ground was drenched. It wasn’t long until he came to finish the job. He’s such a hard worker…..one reason I try to keep him happy with blackberry cobblers, etc.
I do the same with Steve…no WAY I could replicate what he is able to do 😉
Beautiful, will you putting in some live amphibians and fishes?
Our back pond has fish and frogs, and our lab occasionally taking a dip. The front pond (pictured) has frogs and dragonflies, and the other day something I didn’t want to see in there. We may put fish in later.
oh, dear….hope that something will disappear.
Jeri, the pond is so pretty. I wish that it were mine. HOw lucky you are to have a husband that loves things the same as you. The pond and waterfall should attract various birds which is a wonderul bonus for your property.
Yvonne, thanks so much! We have never had a problem attracting birds here. In fact we didn’t get so many blueberries this year because they beat us to them.
I love your property, and this pond is one of my favorites.
Thanks so much! We know how fortunate we are.
