Thank you, Laura!

The bench and chairs are made out of cast iron. My aunt gave them to me...

I have two fish named Samson and Delilah in there. Of course, it might be two males or two females. Haven't spotted any little ones yet...

I think this pond is only two feet deep. The fish over-wintered in it last year with no problem. We don't normally have harsh winters here in SC.

We have done a lot more to it, but I haven't taken any more recent photos. I will try to do that tomorrow...

Thank you, Jiffy!

Here is what it looks like today.

We have added pea gravel to the waterfall and it is clearing the water up. Of course, I threw some more fake plants in there to help shade it.

And here are Samson and Delilah...

We bought one of those solar water fountains, but it is not working in this picture. It needs cleaned every day around here to work properly. I haven't had the time with everything else we have been doing around here...
