My Soothing Waterfall & Pond!!!!




My soothing noise maker......I love the sound of the waterfall!!
When I am in the gazebo I can see and hear the falling water...The gazebo has a hanging chandlier and there are lights on the pond, so sometimes I am out there late at night enjoying my books, music and the waterfall!!!
I will also enjoy talking to my friend Carla, in WV as she is a night owl just like me...One of the nice perks of living in a small town....
You can see that fall is here and of course here in Minnesota the pond plants and fish must be brought inside so they don't freeze....
I have my tank set up and ready for the fish to be brought inside....The plants will be clipped back and then put into plastic bags and stored in a small room under the basement steps.....I drain the pond, catch the fish and then fill the pond back up and put a pool mattress into the pond and a blue tarp over that, to keep the fall & winter debris out of the pond....Dakota, my lovable Lab, will do you know what there, when it freezes and this keeps her off that area....It is just closer for her than going to the back yard....I
t looks so bare when the gazebo and pond are done for the summer...and it also brings thoughts of shoveling snow...My granddaughter's husband Kevin keeps my driveway plowed during the winter...such a nice guy!!!

Sue, what GORGEOUS pictures! Now I can picture you and what is around you when we chat :) It sure does sound like you have alot of work to do, closing the pond, but I know that it is worth it to you... Thank you for sharing your blessed spot... xox

Beautiful spot Sue! I hope you get to keep it up for a bit longer. I bet it is very soothing to hear the water and work on crafts. I sure would hate to take it down. Love it!
