Pond Pix
« on: May 22, 2010, 11:45:38 AM »

Here a few pix of my pond.  The fish are hiding and the plants of course haven't bloomed.  But we just got it all set up.  I'll take more pix when everything is beautiful and blooming.  Of course the pix wouldn't be complete without the "pond helpers"! LOL! Wink

It's beautiful! I can't even imagine what it must be like with the plants all green and blooming and the fish swimming about! (:

Well I got up this am and the fish aren't hiding as much so I thought I would snap a few more pix. Grin
Well, there on my net in the corner was quite a surprise visitor.  Well I guess it's true "when you build it they will come". LOL!  He's a big fat tree frog! Smiley
I couldn't stand nothing blooming and it being so empty looking without folage that I decided to put in a planter with flowers in the middle of the pond.  It will be colorful and great shade for the fish. Wink
I'll try to contain myself and not post too many more pix for awhile. Cheesy
Thanx guyz for all your nice comments! Kiss

This looks very very nice already, Mindemae.

How big are your fishies in the pond?
Freddo the Frog is a beauty too, lol

The fish in the big pond are 3-9 inches.
Isn't Freddo lovely?  He/she is the prettiest tree frog I have ever seen. Smiley

Lately I've been working on landscaping the front.  We put in two barrel ponds. (With one pouring into the other one)  One would do nicely if you haven't much space.   But my husband bought these for me several years ago and we haven't set them up in a few years and this year I was motivated!!
This year we decided to add them to the landscaping in the front of the house.  *Sigh it's such alot of work and still needs some mulch and more plants.  I bought a couple of 13 cent baby goldfish to put in the barrel ponds.
Right now they are swimming happily in a ten gallon tank in my office.  It's been so humid and warm I didn't want to put them outside yet when the weather has been well into the nineties!  Poor babies would boil.  The end of this week we will have some temps back down in the 70's so then they can go to their new summer home. Smiley
Well anyways, here are a couple of pix of the barrel ponds.

The barrel ponds hold about 30 gallons of water each.
Thank you for all the nice comments.
You are right, we have had alot of work to do. I think the nice weather so early has motivated us and given us more time to do yard work.  Forget the housework when you can be outside, right? LOL!  Wink  It went from winter right to summer weather this year.  I think we skipped spring altogether.  I can't believe it is only May and the weather has been humid and in the ninties.  This has been record highs for northern Michigan.

Wow, they're much bigger than they look! O__O Very cool! Cheesy

Same here! It was snowing in April, and next thing I know, it's almost 30 degrees outside! Feels like a record for me too! Cheesy (Since I live up north for now..)

Mindemae, those barrel ponds are so lovely. I've never seen something like this before. Can you move them inside in winter? Hope this are no st*pid questions, LOL  Grin Your fishies sure will have a life like in paradise.
And I agree, if there is gardening, etc to do, we forget about the housework too, LOL. Reminds me we need to mow pretty soon again... Too nice to be inside on a gorgeous day.
Even if it is winter here, during early to late lunchtime hours we do have 23-24 degrees Celsius. Nights are cold, about 9 cels at the moment, mornings and evos about 16.

Thank you!  The barrel ponds can be emptied and brought in.
One year I did have them inside the house with my goldfish in them. Smiley
I had a fig tree with lights and potted plants around it...in my living room no less. LOL!
Some people who came over thought it was simply lovely.  Others complained and said it should be kept to the outdoors.  Well, I didn't care, I thought they were lovely and the sound of the water so pretty.  Well If I ever decide to add on my sunporch, that is what I will do again someday. Smiley

I just looked at the first pix and I can't believe how much the plants have grown in just a couple of weeks!
Wow!  Look at these pix of the barrel ponds!  Even the lilys are starting to come up.  They were just a root when thrown in there! Cheesy

Thank you, fish friends! Wink 
well here in northern Michigan we have had unseasonably warm weather so I think that is why everything spouted so fast...that and the great fertilizer from our fish friends.LOL! Smiley
If you guyz ever get the chance you should try ponding.  You would love it as much as having an aquarium.

Here is a picture of my tropical fish tank.  I just have a few zebra danios and 1 Goleden Gorami in the tank.
Those zebra danios swim so fast it is hard to get a cler shot of them. Smiley

The tank is only a 14 gallon tank.  Just right for a few small tropical fishes.  Those zebra danios are also prolific.
My gosh I find alot of babies in there every time I clean the tank.  Gosh they breed like guppies! Grin

Once my bigger tank will be ready and moved to where it should be (our apartment, most probably) I was intending to keep some little guppies or something in my biOrb (: But I would buy a heater for it first, I think... anyway, I really want to keep using it somehow, and having some fine-leaved plants and smaller fish there would be so lovely!

That's terrible! My fiance's bike was stolen not long ago, we found it outside of a grocery shop by the town square. BUT ****, I was so pissed! His bike is something über good that he's customized for himself. I just wanted to hit the ******* that took it.

Kat, did you have to buy it back, or did they give it to your for free when you told them it was stolen from you?

That might keep them out of trouble!
