    Several years back I found a small piece of driftwood that caught my eye while visiting San Marcos. It was not quite weathered enough for my liking so I sunk it in the pond so it could build some character. Well as I said that was several years ago. I ran across it while cleaning out my snowflake lillies in the side pond area. I had no clue what I was grabbing at first. And man did it age like a fine wine. Absolutely beautiful!!! So what did I do....

    I made a new waterfall out of it. I already had a pump and existing plumbing to a fish statuary spitter so I just through a splitter on the line and ran an additional hose. I love the way it came out with the water appearing out of the thick rush.

    Here we some pics for y'all. Hope you enjoy. 20180517_193707.jpg 20180517_193728.jpg 20180517_193738.jpg

    Very cool! I love adding wood pieces to the pond. It's the fourth necessary element to me - water, rocks, plants, and wood. Well, fifth if you count fish!

    I always thought driftwood was underrated, in ponds and aquariums both. It's good stuff!
