Carolina jasmine covering the roof of my shed, cascading down and smelling delicious.

Little girls have a special place to sit...they love it because they feel hidden.

The east garden has my special project for the season.

I'm converting the water feature of the last five years to a goldfish pond. See far left, in the background.

I designed a bog filter for the 275 gallon stock tank, and my son supplied the muscle.

For anyone interested in how we built it, I described it step by step in this thread on an aquarium forum.

The pond and bog plants will ship the week of April 22, and after I plant and let them settle in for a week, the first two ryukins will go in.

This pond will be ryukins only. Commons, comets and shubunkins get so much larger, and are so much faster, they can out-compete the ryukins for food.
