Looking for some feedback from people who own ponds or have built ponds.

I HAND DUG MY POND WITH A SHOVEL WHEN I WAS 65 PUT IN THE LINER AND SET UP MY OWN SKIMMER
SYSTEM AND BUILT A SKIPPY BIO FILTER THAT FEEDS MY WATERFALL AND STREAM. A YEAR LATER I ADDED A 2ND WATERFALL AND SKIPPY FILTER MY POND IS 12 X 22 FEET AND 4 FT DEEP I HAVE 80 OR MORE KOI NOW AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY POND CAN'T IMAGINE NOT SETTING OUT IN THE MORNING WATCHING MY FISH AND BIRDS AND ENJOYING GODS BEAUTY AROUND ME I JUST HAD MY 70TH BIRTHDAY AND I AM STILL IN LOVE WITH MY WATER GARDEN
this is set in the pond so that the fish can swim in and out of it and there is a special pole
you can use to put the food into the bowl and the fish go into it to feed. I made mine from a large glass bowl my sis found for me just fill with water turn upside down on a rack under the water and the fish will find it as soon as you put food into it
I found the lamps on sale at Kirkland's, but the lamp shades are from a lamp sold at Pier 1 and are no longer available. Anyone have a source for this color and style lamp shade? I've Google searched for them for 5 hours last night, and come up with almost nothing -- sadly, the Pottery Barn version is sold out. Thanks for helping!
YOUR GARDENS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL, I TOO LOVE ROCKS AND FLOWERS AND PONDS AND WATERFALLS. WHEN I
MOVED TO TEXAS I FOUND OUT THE ROCKS HERE ARE MOSTLY IRON ORE ROCK AND VERY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. NOW WHEN I RETURN TO MICHIGAN EVERY SUMMER I BRING HOME A COUPLE BIG BARRELS OF FIELD STONE FROM THE FARMERS UP THERE. I AM SLOWLY GETTING MY POND LINED WITH THEM AS WELL AS MY 2 STREAMS AND WATERFALLS. THANKS FOR SHARING WITH US
Last fall I posted a pic of some bulbs that had shoots coming up in November. While we had many suggestions on what they may be, we decided we would have to wait to see if/when they
flowered. The leaves went dormant through our mild winter and continued growing again as spring approached. Now we have flowers, finally. I am sure many of our knowledgeable gardeners here will be able to easily identify it for me. In addition to identifying, I would like to know if their appearance in the fall with flowers in the spring is normal or did they somehow come up at the wrong time?
