Backyard Oasis

I just wanted to introduce you to another one of our hobbies.

We have a Koi pond off our deck out the back door. We started out with a pond in the front yard, but it really wasn't deep enough to keep fish. The ground out here is super rocky and it's hard to dig very deep. I loved the pond, tho.

Then we tried a small preformed pond, but it just wasn't big enough for fish and plants.

So, again, we hand dug this pond off the back deck, and it is still a work in progress.

Just wanted to share because we really enjoy our pond.

These are our Koi.

And this is our pond frozen a few winters ago!

Right now I would take a little of the cold weather. It's been too hot to sit outside and enjoy it.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as we do.
