Pond is done and ready!

We have finally finished cleaning the pond. Poor Jon, it has been a huge project especially for him as some of the lilly pad roots were as big as his arm. We are so thrilled it I done just in time for a party tonight. Now to buy some fish and restock it. (we lost all of them ) :(

Pond - just finished filling it.

This is what it looked like last night.    We are so thrilled to have it done.
