Soothing Backyard Pond With Fountain

1 Hour
I've always wanted a fountain or pond for my backyard. I never thought I would have one, but was lucky enough to get one last week! My backyard backs to a playground that can be loud at times, so the soothing sound of trickling water can be quite blissful!
The pond features a lovely bamboo-looking fountain, some water hyacinths that I got (at 50% off) at a local nursery and four goldfish! My husband and I took about an hour to set it up. The pond has been providing hours of enjoyment -- especially for me and my kids! We love to feed and watch the goldfish. One of my daughters snapped the below photo -- it shows Ollie, our boldest goldfish. We see him the most! (Some of the goldfish like to hide below the pond's shelf.)
You can see three of our goldfish in the below photo: Ollie, Monet and Dipper. (Dipper is named after a character in an animated TV program my kids like.)
I am giving a mini version of this pond away on my blog, Mom Home Guide! The pond has been one of the best additions to my home's backyard!
