    Winter pond pics

    Thank you it has been a joy to watch in its first year. There is a ton of algae now but the water conditions are perfect so I can live with that.

    What does your pond look like ... Today?

The aerator is doing its job like a champion and I stuck the deicer out there to keep the passage to the skimmer ice free as it did ice over so now the big is iced up and not running.
