For the first 4 years, we had lots of green frogs - they were funny, and very noisy.
It was so relaxing to sit and watch the fish. The heron discovered them and had a fine meal.
This was in 2003. My grandsons, Jack and Nick, loved the pond. They haven't been over in the last week, and I haven't had the nerve to tell them it's gone. Guess I'll be playing lots of ball!
This photo has run for 3 years as the ad for the landscaping company who built the pond.
This frog was my little shadow - He stayed so close to me, that I almost stepped on him from time to time.
The lotus were always so gorgeous. We'll plant a couple of small ones in pots - can't give up everything.
