The Pond Day 2
Ahhh, today is a perfect day to work on the pond. It is a cool day, with thick cloud cover and every so often releasing a heavy rain..lasting just long enough for a relaxing coffee break, then back to work. Alan is the Lone Wolf out in the yard today. I am taking charge of the much needed domestic duties inside.
Alan has brought the pond up to the depth he needed. Today he is building the shelves where the aquatic plants will rest. When I walked out there to take a coffee break with Alan, I was pleasantly surprised.. The pond is now taking shape and I couldn't help but visualize the aquatic plants that will find their home there in the pond.
Let's take a walk to the shade garden next to the patio.. I love the way it looks after a good rain.
Oh, one of the things on my must do list is RE-plant the tomatoes..I am a learn by my mistakes type of gal when it comes to gardening. Last year my brother-in-law brought Alan and I a grundle of fresh tomatoes straight from his garden. They were Scrum-dilly-umptious!!! So, this year i thought i would give it a whirl and plant my own tomatoes. And I did just that as you can see in the pot. I was so proud til my mama stopped by and she is quite a green thumb and she said.. well Dianie you wont get any tomatoes from those plants the pots are too small and it will get root rot..
Yep, so I learned something new from my mom about growing tomatoes in pots and I will be getting a Big pot very soon so we can have a grundle of tomatoes.
