Over the last few weeks a pond and a related garden have been taking shape in my backyard, there is still a little bit of work to be done, but I have some photos of the pond and garden to share with you.
The pond is currently occupied by goldfish, a few plants, some pebbles and a water pump (which filters and recycles the pond water). Over time, the plants will grow a bit and cover the edges of the pond, and some of the pond itself.
The fish appear to enjoy their time in the pond.
And a view from the other end of the garden.
In the second picture you can clearly see the mesh covering which has been put in place to prevent leaves and other foreign objects entering the pond. This is necessary due to the gum trees which hang over the garden.
I also have a video (just over 1 minute and 10 seconds) of the fish swimming in the pond. It can viewed or downloaded by clicking here
These photos and the video were taken on July 31, so they are a bit over a week old, and a couple things have changed since then, including the addition of a vase laying on its side acting as a covered area for the fish to take shelter in, if they so desire.
