Thankyou, It's one of the best things we ever did I think. It's so nice to sit and watch the birds bathing and with the windows open the scent of the Apponogeton drifts in. The fish come up to the window to feed.

I think you may get some real ducks sitting in the pond one day. It looks big enough. Puts my tin bath to shame lol

Thats my question answered. looks very nice .do you keep a mixture of fish in it

Thanks Bjs there are 6 koi 5 fantails and 3 commets, Oh! and 1 perch. We gave 6 golden orf to friends as I was convinced they were eating the young fish,turned out that a heron had scared them to the bottom for over a week and after I caught him one morning he didn't come back and they gradually came back up to feed. We didnt even see them when we were netting the orf.

Thanks Dd and Sid, I just love being by water, it always makes me feel good. I couldn't live by a river or the sea so this is the next best thing..... :o) .......................... I didn't claim for moat cleaning iether Sid. The poor old duck sprang a leak and now only floats lying on its side.

What is Apponogeton? haven't heard of that one. Another great picture of your pond.

It's the pond plant thats flowering in the middle of the pond Roseberry. It flowers for at least 9 months and has a beautiful scent. I put an extra p in the name by mistake, it's Aponogeton.
