I Am In Withdrawal!!!

I MUST POST!
This is the water garden I built for Dad about seven years ago. I used Dad's rock collection so he could enjoy them. He spent many hours watching the fish, bees, and butterflys. Through the years I have let it grow out of control.
SOOOO, I have trackled the project. Had to take it completely out and check for holes in the liner.

Reshaped the hole, relined, and refilled the pond.

Moved flowers and started replacing the rocks.
What I thought would be a two day job has stretched out to several since I work outside the home. I am still repotting water lillies and looking for more rocks. Will post pictures of progress.
During the organization, I have found old photos. Here I am in about '87 with crimped hair and a trophy.
