It looks beautiful Dawn you should be very proud of yourselves , are these the same edges that you were digging out clay last year, clearing it and putting top soil on to make plants grow ? , you've worked miracles with it , :o))

Absolutely beautiful! You must have worked really hard to achieve this.

thanks for much to you all.
No, we dont get help with the pond Pansy, just me really.
Thanks Dotty, its getting back to normal again now.
Yes Amy, these are the same, bare, clay banks - can you believe we did the work only last May.

Awww Janey, you are so kind. Do you think the rudbeckias could be from your seed? Grew yours and some bought seed.

They are like mine Dawn, so they maybe are, thanks for mentioning, I need to save more....:o)

Thought they would be Janey, seeds from GOY members always seem to do better than bought seed.

Hello Holly, thank you.

Well whatever work you had to do dawn, has certainly paid off...;well done...

Thanks Crissue. We've had the pond for around 9 years. Gradually bulrushes and reeds began to take over so we re-dug it last year to make it deeper so the reeds cannot take hold so much. I'll certainly be keeping them in check this time.

Sure have done a sterling job, and not an easy one either....

You're right there Crissue, dealing with wet, heavy clay was no fun. Hired a digger for 2 weeks, poor husband was on it for 10 hours per day, so much clay had to be moved around.

I can believe that...Used to garden on clay, on the I.O.W. no fun...so I can imagine the mammoth task you both had...well done OH too...

Thanks Crissue. Lucky you once living on IOW, must have been very warm and sunny.
Agree, clay no fun but then again without the clay, we wouldnt have the pond, too big and expensive for a liner.
