    Photo shows the pond with temporary pump running cascade and gravel patio in the foreground. There are more pix in my gallery.

    The skimmer has been installed and the flagstone pond edge is complete, I can now finish the plumbing. the gravel patio should be complete today. Rain is in the forecast so maybe Mother Nature will wash the rock and construction dirt off things for me. Sure would save me some time and water. We haven't had rain for 2 weeks (odd for April in KY). Things left to do include clean-up, final plumbing, filling pond, planting (YAY! I love planting) and stocking with fish.

    Photo 1 and 2 - panoramic view of pond and gravel patio

    Photo 4 - temporary pond, plants are coming back to life.
    I got the final plumbing connections made over the weekend, 3 trips to Lowes and one to local pond shop for all necessary fittings. It seems I never have all the right pieces. I started scooping all the leaves and dirt out of pond but the rainy weather we had kept my progress limited. The weather is supposed to improve tomorrow but I'll be in Chicago with my daughter on her 5th grade trip. The coming weekend is supposed to be stormy again. My grass is getting really tall, the pond needs cleaning and I have several plants to set out.

    Got laid off from work today, guess I'll have plenty of time to enjoy my new pond.
