It looks great! I have the same problem ... I had one small pond, then wanted a bigger one, so I put a bigger one in. Now I want an even bigger one, but my hubby said the dogs won't have anywhere to do their business if I dig anymore yard up for a pond.
I don't have that problem, I have too much land and not enough money...LOL
Have you ever seen the one on Paul James's Gardening by the yard? Love the way that waterfall splits in two.
Oh well, just be happy for this one to be completely done. I sure love sitting by it.
Yes, too many fish. Went to the bait shop down the road and got a beautiful white fish with long fins, at least 2 koi's (small), and 4 other fish I don't know what they are. Then there was some hanky panky cause I ended up with little fish. Had a black fish but he is slowly turning gold and a gold and white fish. Love them, love to feed them. They have over wintered just fine with a heater to keep the ice open.
I over wintered a couple of the plants in my garden room. Worked out pretty good.
Interesting. Maybe because my lotus is up in the shallows of the pond? I have seen the fish nibble on the water iris roots that hang down more than anything. Maybe they will eat the lotus as the fish get bigger?
I am so excited I have a bud coming on my lotus, first one I have ever had.
Tropicman, maybe my fish don't bother the lotus roots because of the jagged edges of my pot? My husband had several new oil drainage black things and I cut the top out and it made a great lotus pot. Course where I cut the pot it is pretty ruff and there isn't much water over the lotus roots...Just a thought.
