    Lucky us! The house already had 2 ponds dug out when hubby bought the place. They have been on the to-do list for a long time, and finally we decided to tackle the front yard pond. It's located between our front door and fishroom door. We started off by cleaning up the area around the hole, and digging out some more. Most of the really hard work was already done, but we still dug out a surprising amount of dirt! Here's a pic of the pond filling up. We've estimated the size at somewhere around 300 gallons.

    We're about to go outside and get started on the filter and waterfall. There will be plenty more pics to come!
