New water feature.

We have started the new mini pond in front of the front porch.The large pond is to the back of the house in the hosta garden so we don't hear the water moving out here on the porch.This new one will be for the baby fish.As they grow bigger they will go into the bigger pond or go to live in someone elses pond.
I am taking out the block wall and leaving only one row with the cap block on it.
New wiring will be done so the *wonderful*orange drop cord will be gone.Hosta and other shade plants will be planted.Stay tuned for more pictures.

The wahoo bush,on the patio side of the porch, was severely cut back last year.You can see it behind the stack of block toppers.We had so much rain the leaves got a fungus.
I'm not sure it will stay. There are several whaoo bush starts I think will be transplanted to other places in the yard.It is a very interesting bush,the seeds look a lot like a bittersweet seed.

Enough for today.I better get to work.j

Thanks for looking in.
Plain goldfish.Bought them at wal-mart for .23 each. They are so enjoyable to sit and watch.
Have a nice holiday.
