A day in the garden playing in the water.

 We just had two days of rain and high humitity not even any cricket to sleep to, well they played later but it was a bit to lively to sleep to.  
 What a wonderful  day today sunny and a light breeze so not to hot so I spent the day in the garden cleaning out the fish pond and installing the pump and it works so all I need now is the hoses to connect the waterfall.
 No fish yet a bit to violent for fish yet.


 We have it in a enclosed area with a big gate which we can lock when the grandchildren are visiting, lots of drownings lately one was in a pond not much bigger than this one so we are not taking any chances.


 My shed door has come off its hinge on the bottom if I open it it might fall off.



I've scrubbed up all my chairs and done the washing a productive day.

  1. The pond area is looking so nice! I'm glad you have a gate to close it off for when the twins get mobile.

  4. A very, very productive day. Love that pond area. It has been too hot for me here, and will get hotter for the next couple of days.

  5. Your garden and pond look cool and inviting, you did a great job of setting up the fountain. The lockable gate is an excellent idea. Our summers are fierce and we get everything outside done early and spend the rest of the day inside.

  6. The sound of water in a garden makes it a tranquil place and all gardens should have a water feature.

  9. The fish pond is pretty, Merle. It's peaceful and calming to look at, and will be even nicer once the fish arrive. I noticed the little fellow on your shelf. You always have interesting things to look at in your garden.

    Your 'Baby' Header is cute. Happy New Year, Merle. Yes, let's hope the new year is a good one.

    love, ~Sheri

  13. Your garden looks so welcoming — a perfect place to relax with a cuppa. Good idea to be sure that entry to the pond area can be locked to keep the grand-kids safe.

    It's been so hot and humid over the past couple of weeks although the past few days haven't been too bad. I can't stand the high humidity we get. :(

    Have a lovely week ~ :)

    1. The weather is heating up and like you I find the high humidity very unpleasant.

    1. Today we are going over the 40c so I will be in the garden a lot, in all our heat a garden of snow wouldn't be bad for a few days.
