Comments / Questions

What do you do to maintain the pond? What kind of fish? We have turtles in ours and don’t want to kill them. We live in Southern Indiana.

We have been thinking about having a pond but were concerned about the insects and the wildlife (we are on 25 acres in the Sierra National Forest). Have you had any problems with either? After seeing how gorgeous your place is, we are revisiting that plan.

That is absolutely fantastic!!
Mattemma is right--staycation all the time!!

That is just beautiful and how nice to be right accross from your daughter

Thanks girls,
It will sure seem dead around here after the kids go back to school.I'll miss all the splashing and yelling(call me crazy) You are always welcome for a visit,would love to meet you,Sandy
