Hi everyone
Been too busy at work lately to get into the garden to do any work on my pond. Going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, it’s awful this time of year. Anyway I managed a few hours today and installed the pump and put the waterfall in position. As you can see there is still plenty of work to do but the sound of running water is nice and I’ve got a couple of days off work now so I might make a bit more progress. Anyway I’m sure you will get the idea of what I’m trying to achieve, I’m putting in a small pebble beach at the opposite end of the waterfall, hopefully I’ll get that done tomorrow.

It's coming along Jim....and I was only looking over the weekend to see if you'd updated us on your pond...and here it is :)

Do you belong to your local Freecycle, Jim? That can be a good source for picking up stone...we've managed a few and some slate chippings that people were offloading so it may be worth joining's free and people just post on the site what they have to reply if you have need of what they offer...and likewise you can post up anything you want rid of and people will come and collect it if you agree. Just an idea....
