Landscaping Project #2

To be honest, this was not my creative effort, but my husband’s. He built a small pond in our back yard a few years ago, right beside our breakfast nook windows. There is a small waterfall in the corner, and we love the sound of flowing water. We enjoyed the pond so much, my husband decided to expand it this past spring. It now circles out around the deck. He added a new path around the pond, and we added new landscaping beds on each side. I helped choose and plant flowers in the new beds. I love perennials since they come up each year, so I am using this opportunity to try out some new plants.  Whatever doesn’t work I will pull up and move, and we will try something new next year. That’s the great thing about flowers! Here are some “before and after” pics of the pond. We had to begin all over with pond plants, but by the end of the summer, the plants in our new pond should be flourishing.
