Janie's Tub Pond
This my tub pond. It was my great grandparents' clawfoot bath tub. It has been in my yard since they passed away many years ago. I have wanted it to be a pond for several years. It was my birthday present this year.
My husband laid electricity and a plug so its foot pump cord would reach. We capped off the extra side of the faucet and put an adapter on the other side. That way we could attach the clear tubing to the small fountain pump in the tub.
The waterlily is the tropical waterlily, 'Tina.' I planted it in a shallow 2 gallon pot.
I bought 7 goldfish from the bait store so they can eat any aphids and mosquito larva.
The small white flowers are called 'Snowflake.' The goldfish are much happier since the algae developed on the to the water's height. The tub has azaleas, honeysuckle and a Chinese Fringe plant around it.
