A budding photographer, and an update on the pond

© 2010 Joshua Stark

A great picture of our new pond, partly installed.  The great part of this photo isn't the picture, it's who took it... my three-year old daughter!

I'm only a little bummed that she takes better pictures than I.

I laid down the double-over plastic liner after fitting in some shelves.  As you can see, the ducks are happy I put in shelves, as they sit up on it and preen.

We are very excited with this, especially considering exactly what it replaces:

I still need to add a hard plastic piece to the bottom of the new pond, so I can use my sump pump to drain it, and I also need to surround it with rocks and purty stuff, and adjust the water line out so that it will water our raised beds.  However, it is coming along nicely.

Update on this update:  The cheapie pond liner I bought lasted about 8 hours with duck claws.  Currently looking for a better liner.  If you have suggestions, please let me know.
