These are some pics of the ponds/falls today. It has changed a bit since I built it. The flowers are grown and filled in. Flocks were added last year. I call this my tranquil place to relax morning and evening. Adding a light post this weekend to this area with a dimmer switch. Sometimes we have pond visitors at night..we're trying to find out what kind of visitor and what is so interesting to them, and us. We put a sensor owl in and a crocodile figure in the middle but it does not repel... The frog harmonizing stops. That is when we know it's back again..I am pretty sure it is not the bench that interests them, so..who is our visitor??.. I hope to find out soon.. stay tuned. Maybe we'll have an answer next week.

    just recently built a pond. Just hope mine is half a beautiful as this one, once my flowers and greenery takes off. Planted vine around my falls and elephant ears, red hot pokers and a banana tree in behind it. Thank you for the beautiful pics and inspiration. Did you know you can also plant elephant ears the same way you do water lilies in ponds?
