Ive been working on my little pond. We have about a dozen gold fish in it and they like cold water so I knew I had to get some shade going before the weather really heats up. I went to a nursery yesterday and the owner dug up some plants from the ditch that runs thru the nursery and sold them to me for only $5.00 I also found out I can plant an elephant ear in a pot and put it in the pond. I also found out that bamboo like wet feet too and will work. The people at walmart don't know much cause they had a huge bin of elephant ears and a whole table full of bamboo plants and they said they didn't have anything that could go in a pond. Glad I went to the nursery.
This is what my little pond looks like right now. I will continue to work on it and put more plants and such in it.
I have never had a pond before, this is kind of fun.
