Pond got that "Arctic look"!


Our pond changed its appearance recently with the cold weather, which at one point dipped to -12°C.

Stood on the ice (It was very thick) and cut holes for fountains as the fenders I had put in previously were not up to the job of preventing the ice from potentially cracking the sidewalls.
