Very attracive pond. I really like to see Acers close to a pond - can't really give a reason why other than I likes 'em!

12 May, 2012

12 May, 2012

 

That looks brilliant, Sanbaz, you must have been working very hard. Don't overdo it :)

12 May, 2012

 

thankyou so much Gee,, its been hard work today and think i may have over done things, felt a bit sick before but ok now im resting, its hard to stop once we start isnt it :o) rest day tomoz

I know what you mean, Sanbaz. First real sunshine today so I walked Millie for 90 minutes through the wood, mowed the lawns and spent hours (!) weeding. Can hardly stand up straight now and bending over gave me heartburn but it was worth it :)

The pond looks really well, and nicely planted Sandra. It didnt take long to get it to this state really, did it.

12 May, 2012

12 May, 2012

 

Your pond looks so interesting with the plants mixing with the pots etc.

12 May, 2012

12 May, 2012

Beautiful pond, San....

thankyou so much Guys for the lovely comments, when i think what we have been through to get to this, first the liner pond and having to redo that, then winter rain falls ruined the liner pond with all the clay water got under neath and it swelled like a balloon, oh my god i thought we would never get it righ haha
but hoprfully now it right and will stay that way,
so if you have heavy clay be carefull when installing a new pond and i would go for a pre-formed pond rather than a liner.
scottish if i can help you i will and if you want to ask me anything just send me pm ok.
i wouldnt be without my pond, i love the sound of water when in the garden and watching my fishies swimming about, also it brings wildlife to your garden, frogs which keep the slugs down which is great as i dont use any chemicals in my garden, i like it to be natural and apart from weeding it looks after itself.
im a fair weather gardener to, but from spring till winter im out there enjoying it all,
happy gardening all :o))))

It's looking lovely Sandra, all that hard work has paid of, enjoy, I also love the sound of water there's something soothing about listening to it .....

13 May, 2012

13 May, 2012

14 May, 2012

 

thankyou so much Richard and Amy, had lots of rain to get plants settled in to,
i wish the acer was closer to pond Amy to help shade it.
hope the predicted frost doesnt harm acer leaves to.
cheers :o))

16 May, 2012

 

It's looking lovely now San and from what I can see of it, your acer is the spreading sort, so you will have your wish in a few years. Look forwars to seeing your pond in high summer:-)

17 May, 2012

20 May, 2012

24 May, 2012

26 May, 2012

thankyou gardengadgi, glad you like my pond and hope you do decide to have one it seems to complete the garden,, well i think so anyway :o))

11 Jun, 2012

 

Pond area is maturing nicely Sandra. The acer will give some shade to the pond as it gets larger.

20 Jun, 2012

 

thankyou Linda, i use an old parasol, its idea to help shade the pond on sunny days :o))

20 Jun, 2012

 

I should have said.....if and when we get some sunshine although the last couple of days have been great!!!!

21 Jun, 2012

 

well back to rain here boohoo and over weekend to im told, oh well nothing we can do :o))

21 Jun, 2012

 

It will fill the water butts Sandra! It's really horrid weather here today so I'm staying in and cleaning the bungalow through. We have an amber weather warning in Derbyshire.

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi linda your right about filling the water butts, im still waiting for Baz to clear behind the shed so i can have water butts to, he works so many hours its hard to get things done that i need, not complaining but would be great to get it cleared and flagged.
hope the weather is getting better soon though, we go away sat or sunday, not sure where yet, waiting for sunshine to appear or im going to spain lol

24 Jun, 2012

 

Hope you have a good holiday.
