Just a simple fish pond I built 20 years ago, just replaced the liner, lasted all that time, what a job I can tell you...getting the fish out that is.
They are easy to construct and when built you can say I DID THAT!

Friends, relations often look into the pool when they come to our home and it starts a conversation.
We knew nothing about fish but we bought some, kept the water clear with filters etc and the fish seem happy,

Neither its a Robin in front of a Hibiscus plant that was taken with a standard zoom lens . zoom lens bring objects appearance closer so the flower that look like its right next to the bird was probably two feet away.

This is my 5 yr old in front of our newly finished pond. He has been fascinated with the dragonflies and other insects that have been drawn in because of it. He started collecting "cool stuff" from around the pond to "study" with his microscope. I have enjoyed the pond very much and usually spend multiple hours a day sitting beside it, but a kids amazement and wonder is equally fun to behold. Happy Summer!
