By sue42


sunday 14 feb i started building a pond. i was digging all sunday afternoon and most of monday,back to work tuesday and aching all over so the pond will have to wait till sunday as i only have 2 days off. i’,ve taken photos but i will have to wait for my daughter to show me how to put them on again as i have forgotten how to do it.

Good luck with the pond. I'm sure it will look great. I bet you'll get used to puting photos on soon. I took a while to learn myself.

Take great care Sue, your back is precious, but a bit at a time will get it done. I love hearing about new ponds, as they are so valuable to wildlife and give so much pleasure. Will look forward to seeing your results as soon as possible.
There are lots of lovely examples on GoYpedia ponds section.
