    Aww, what a nice little pond. And great hummingbird pictures. Both the ponds in this thread look so peaceful. I like sitting by my pond and reading, but it doesn't look nearly as good as both of yours. Mine probably looks like xvarts friends pond
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Those are some inspirational photos and I have got to find a place to put one. The only thing is that any I make would become one of the terrible ones. Do you do anything with yours or its residents as winter approaches or does everything just overwinter in place?

    I like the "You show me your pond, I show you mine"...I have never tried the more expensive fish like yours. I have only stuck with the hardy single tails like comets because I leave everybody (plants and fish) outdoors overwinter to just chill under the ice.

    Special seasonal care involves putting plastic poultry netting over ponds in the fall to try to cut down on all the leaves I have to fish out so they don't decay and then in winter I use a stock heater to keep a hole open in the ice for gas exchange so the fish don't all up and croak on me. Speaking of croaking..

    Overall view of original pond (the one all the earlier pics are from. Forgive the bit of green, I'm still waiting for the lilies to cover more area and cut down on sun and other plants to suck up more excess nutrients and get the algae a bit more under control as the season progresses. And arghh, goramn maple seed pods, CURSES!)



    Pond 2..heheh...uhhm can I say it is addictive?





    It is still a bit early so both ponds are a bit "tame" since the plants are still slowly waking up as the water warms up.

    Beautiful pond, plants & fish! Thanks for sharing.

    FYI - your 2nd 'frog' is a toad. Around here, they're coming into breeding season. Suspect that your buddy may have that on his mind ....

    Here's my pond and fish.

    Not as nice as the ones above. Mine is 10 feet by 8 feet.




    Spot and Solid are their names. Check out how long their tails are!



    Spot with the longest tail I've ever seen!

    Great Googly Moogly!
