I notice you are using the "electric" wire fence ?
Hi Chris. That isn't an electric fence. It is just fishing line and it seems to work great. I use that in addition to a net to keep the Heron out. I have seen heron stand on the other side of the fishing line and just look at the pond. I use the fishing line to keep them away from the edge of the pond because I know they could pierce the net if they wanted to.

Ha. I kind of figured. I went through all the pictures and tried to decide what cleats met - I guessed it was clematis. ;) But it did take me a while. :)

Cas your pond is neat as a pin! :) Looking great. Mine is a little messier this year as I have let things sprout from seeds that I shouldn't have. :) I need to get brutal and start yanking stuff out around the pond I don't want there.

Thanks Haver79, but you haven't seen me post any pictures of the plants around my pond these past few weeks. :) I haven't gotten much rain since July 27 and I couldn't keep up with the watering. I have one plant blooming next to the pond right now and everything else is brown. I refuse to show you how the pond looks now. :LOL: But, hey, no algae blooms and very little string algae, so all is not lost.

After seeing the pictures that you posted of your pond in the other thread, I realized I need to plant some flowers that bloom in August. The plants around your pond look so healthy. I love how lush it looks - don't pull out too much!

I think I have the blooming of the flowers timed pretty well for June and July. See the pictures below. But if you noticed, I left no room for August blooming plants. Well, maybe if I can get my water lilies to bloom, they would help. Ha!
