Frogs Pond Update

Hi there, hope your having a great day! Some of you may remember the frog project I did.
I kinda decked out the frogs, and they look cool.
I wanted to make a faux pond for them. Some followers have been asking about how I was doing on the pond. I had it all set up in the rose garden, but I couldn't see it from the house the way it was situated. So back to the drawing board. Now in the meantime while I was trying to figure out a place for it, I painted a pallet in blue colors...
I love those colors! I was going to make it a herb planter. But then a idea struck! Since the frogs were ready, I could make this a neat backdrop for them. Then I thought of making it a billboard with their stage names on it. I made the letters with the glass gems from the dollar store.
I remember seeing a sign in the dog section at a store, that I loved. It said' Sandy Paws and Salty Kisses'. It reminds me of the beach and my doggies...so that's their names. LOL
Next week I am having a pool put in. I want the frogs by one area of the pool...this will look so cute by it, and warms up a corner. I decided to put it up temporary to see how it looked. I had added a net, shells, pearls, starfish and seahorses
I gathered the blue plastic tarp I had purchased at Walmart...$3....I racked away the small stones, and cut a oval shape, kinda. I added some gems to the pond...some rocks, Frog King, etc.
Lots of fans!
This is how it will sit for the next couple of weeks. I did put a solar spotlight on it for nighttime performances. It is positioned so when your sitting under the pergola, it's like they are performing for you! Imagination sparks creativity!

    Where did you get the irregular shaped blue thing in the foreground that you are using as a planter? Is it intended as a planter, or is it a pond?
