    Hi I love your pond and the fact that you can see it on the web. Mine is currently covered in snow and ice too. I would like to put mine an the internet too. Do you need to have a static IP address with Myq-see software?

    I happened to marry someone that also enjoys nature, ponds and understood, I need to keep busy..............well the pond build was beyond busy. Now though it is just a tweak here a tweak there. NO MORE ponds being added which I have been saying since the last two I added. Just love the wildlife it brings to a yard.

    Imagine the picture you see being nothing but grass, and I mean nothing but grass, that was the beginning. I will load more pics once we get home, they are all on a back up hard drive.

    What a wonderful gift! My sweet husband got me an impact driver and hammer drill for Christmas. It's good to have hubby's who know what girls like :)

    Wonderful pond as always. Your pond has always been an inspiration for me.

    When I moved across country honey was sort of asking why are we hauling all these tools, bolts, screws, etc. Sort of said love me love my tools. I would be lost without them.
    He has since realized I love my tools...........all of them. Sold a few things I should have hung onto, but we hauled two tractor loads 2300 miles to move me, including boxes of rocks.
    The only reason we have a pond is that tractor he bought me. frederick is clay and shale can't even put in a normal plant without a pick.

    Wow, Chris! It's been years since I was there to see your build in person and it looks fantastic. Still working on my little one here in VA. After having my 5000 gal in Maryland, this little one here is doing the job making me happy. Always happily working even when it's frozen.:)

    Thanks I love it, not structured at all, has weeds, but when in bloom it is beautiful, even when not in bloom it looks good.

    We have been darn busy. The bees have not stopped this year. Since Early February we have had to baby them a warm winter, brooded up to fast, non stop feeding to keep them alive until the nectar flowed, now we have a mean hive. Need to figure out which one and requeen it.

    But enough about bees.

    I planted lavender, behind the hives, here is a very short video, they did not allow me to be there long. All types of pollinators love it!
