a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Another Project...

Before I began
You can read the story about the beginning of this water garden here.  It has quite a history.  After trimming all the unwanted and beginning another pile, I had to empty the garden to clean it.  It has been awile since I have had the time to attend to this properly.
I found some old friends
and a new one.
The turtle was not happy.
Empty of all things, clean
and refill.  All rocks replaced.  Pickerel and Parrot Grass planted.  It will be crystal clear tomorrow.
Off to find more rocks.
I love jobs like this!

Love following your progress with this.
Something about having water on your property is so tranquil......

Have a beautiful day!

Your project looks really good. We saw on the news that Hwy. 7 has some problems south of Jasper, and that road was something to negotiate before it started slip-slidin' away!

Your water garden is just so beautiful and to find little friends enjoying what you've accomplished is amazing.

I once had a small pond and fountain here but unable to keep the watersnakes and raccoons out of it.Since it was near the chickenyard I was afraid it would draw the raccoons near the chickens.

Looks like a wonderful project. A nice shady spot, too.

Maybe the turtle will be happy with a clear pond, too.
Have a wonderful weekend. ♥

Love your new friend. I hope he sticks around now that you've removed his hiding equipment.

Love your turtle friend! We had a cute pond in SC, but I never found any turtles in it.
