Just love it! I remember seeing the pics of when you were digging it out(pretty sure it was the same pond--and your pond). laugh nutz laugh

How deep is your deepest spot? Deep enough for the fish to overwinter in there?

It is right at 4 feet deep at the deepest point! All my fish are still alive I believe. I see them every now and then when the sun shines good in the pond! Heck, even my small pond that is only 2 feet deep sustains fish in the winter when completely frozen over. As long as you keep a small hole open through the ice to let toxic gases escape, they will survive. Here is a picture of my small pond frozen over! There are five goldfish in this pond, all about 6 inches long! [Linked Image]

no ice please frown but it is pretty!!!! i agree, your pond looks as big as a swimmimg pool!

i would love to have a pond that big, but, because of living "in the forest", as i likd to say, it is either several small ponds and lots of flowers or one large pond with a few flowers. i had to go with the first choice!
