|so here's our old pond, kinda looking tired and sad after years of neglect.|
|view from other side - still same old pond only being emptied|
|just a short jaunt to the left - our new location for the pond|
|rough layout for the new pond - I was going for an organic shape|
|almost done digging mechanically|
So I don't have many pictures of it in between here as we cut, glued and laid down our liner then schlepped it to the hole, because hubby was not too keen on me stopping to grab my camera every 30 minutes, plus it was 96 degrees (F) and I had sweat rolling down the crack and everywhere else you don't want it... ew. You wouldn't believe how heavy that stinkin' thing is. I think I ruptured my spleen heaving it up on the wagon.
|Asher wore out|
|not too wore out to do tricks for the camera|
|curiosity killed the...|
|All one day's hard work|
|Hubby and Asher admiring the work we had done, and watching Lightning|

|go the pole in for the electric box|

|playing in the bubbles as we add more water|
The white and black koi fish is our largest. I think it's a she, we've had babies but not in the previous pond. Hopefully we'll get more babies as I get plants and the pond matures. Not sure where the time went and what we did in between these pics but before I knew it, we were building the first waterfall and it was dark. Yes, those rocks are heavy!
|waterfall #1 made of Kentucky flagstone (limestone? sandstone?|
|close up - ahhh if you could only hear it.|
We actually have another waterfall built but I haven't taken pictures of it yet. I'll post them soon. Hubby's vacation is over now (good thing, he was working me like a dog), so back to our normal schedule but stay tuned for more as the koi pond slowly progresses!
