    Talking Pond au naturel....UPDATE!!

    Well, with a little work and some time off from school, the little rock fountain we put in has been cleaned up. It took a few days, but here she is in all her bare glory. The first photo is the before shot, the next few are the afters. The after shots were taken in the morning sun, so they are a bit washed out, sorry. Enjoy!

    Cheers!

    I would say that was a bit more than a little work.

    It looks great.

    I was a lot of work, but it felt good to do it. The hard part was diging out the tree stumps that were growing between the rocks. When I finished, there was a pile of brush as high as the hill that the fountain is dug into.

    Cheers & thanks for the thumbs up!

    Nope. We did it all. It is so nice to be able to see the rocks again. I just hope we can keep it cleaned up. The weeds and vines grow fast here in Arkansas.

    Cheers!

    Haha... Thanks Cathy. But in fact it is small compared to the pond that we built it onto.

    cheers,
