Thanks everyone, the pond plants havent come to life yet really, just the odd lily, so some colour on the banks is useful.

Looks lovely now Dawn great job you done of making this pond to me its a lake must of taken ages for it to be dug out.

23 May, 2011

 

Hi Skip. Yes, we dug it ourselves about 9 years ago and then last year re-dug it to get rid of all the bulrushes that were taking over, slowly establishing itself again.

Thanks Sixpence. Yes, the re-dig took 14 solid days and then was left with piles of solid clay.

Hi Janey, you are welcome anytime, stay as long as you like.

I would love a small rowing boat, sitting on the edge of the water (might look on ebay lol) but sadly only a blow up boat, ha ha.
