The Birds

you must click on these pictures to really see the action. the yard was a swirl of cedar waxwings and the pond was the center of activity. the blurry blobs are birds. many more are in the shrubs and trees surrounding the pond.

yes. the black plastic is not so visually attractive. i redid the upper pond and waterfall (third time. a charm?) and have not yet arranged rocks to cover the plastic. the waterfall works quite well and there seem to be no leaks. in arranging the previous incarnation i punctured the plastic sliding the heavy flat rock that is the bird bathing place and waterfall. the leaking water softened the ground and allowed the structure to tilt a bit. i had to drain the upper pond, remove all the rocks, and take out the plastic. i patched the holes with wetpatch and let it dry completely.

  1. Do you want to grow your own House Plants, Flowers, Trees and Shrubs for FREE....Grow them to landscape your yard, grow them for fun and for profit....Growing small plants in your backyard is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your life. Not to mention the money you can make. Getting started in this home based business is really easy. All you have to do is start rooting cuttings of your favorite plants (I'll show you how to do that), and you are off and running. Any time you have a few extra minutes just stick a few cuttings. Before you know it you will have thousands of plants valued at several thousand dollars.
