More Pond Progress




 
Digging is in full swing for our new koi pond! It' supposed to be rainy and wet for the next week, so my husband worked really hard over the weekend to get as much done as he could. The basic shape and depth are complete. It's almost time for the liner to go in. Then it will seem like a real pond instead of just a giant hole in the backyard!

This Week in the Garden





 
After a very chilly Mother's Day, it's been a beautiful warm and sunny week. The garden is thriving in this warmer weather.
This is a great year for the pretty pink and purple columbine. The goldfinches like to eat the seeds from the dried flower pods and they must have scattered the seeds all over the yard. Columbines are blooming everywhere! And the hostas and ferns fill the shady areas with their lush, multi-textured blue and green leaves.
