Makena, our Bengal, would much prefer warmer weather: more creatures flying, swimming, hopping, slithering...and no jacket to wear (his Asian leopard ancestors did him no favors in the fur department)


While I would prefer the same, there is a serene beauty to a winter pond

Dude that is a nice pond. It looks like it is completely natural. I have to ask
Did you build it. Or is it natural?
Our pond formed naturally but we "helped" it along too. The short story is I cleared some brush and then a huge rainstorm washed all the soil away, leaving a big muddy hole. We wanted a pond anyway, so we of cleaned it up. We actually wanted to put a lined pond in a different spot closer to our house, but the trees and big boulders surrounding this looked so nice we just went with it. Turned out we liked having a spot away from the house, kinda like a little private get-away. The whole story is here: The Story of Hopenkroak

Ah yes now I remember your pond build from looking back at your story and photos and the great job you did!
