We have had so much rain- that my poor pond project as been stalled. Hoping to get the liner in tonight and start rocking ..... fingers crossed! This project sure went faster "in my head"!

dreampond updated Turning a dream into a reality!

Wow- all I can say is this ole girl is out of shape! Working at the pond slow and steady.....man this is a lot of work! But the joy I'm receiving already is amazing! Just wish it were done so I could really enjoy! I've added about 18" or so of water while I work on the wall for the active bog-I'm getting there - I think! Got a few plants and just sat them to edge of pond until bog is done. Put in a hardy lily, golden swords, chameleon plant, horsetail, pennywort, blue pickerel rush and white pickerel rush and some water hyacinth. Also hooked up a temporary filter with pump-5 gallon bucket- pea gravel and batting (so far working great to keep water moving and clean). Once I get bog filter done I'll fill pond rest of way and hook up the skimmer and waterfall filter! Did I say that this is going very slowly! Also added 2 shubunkins and 3 sarassa comets. Other than some help moving big boulders, I'm doing everything myself....so far I still have all my fingers and toes and other than a few bruises....I'm still walking....I guess that's success so far! Thank goodness I still work full time otherwise I may have been laying face down in the pond by now!
