This is what the pond area looks like now - outside of the aquarium. I'm getting ready to grout the stone wall now. I should have some more photos tomorrow of my progress. I think I need a mini gardener to help with the planting so it will get finished sooner. Of course, if my gardener was as helpful as Casey's Tessie, maybe I'm better off doing it myself. :0)
Also, I'd like to thank all of my followers. It's very exciting to start a blog and have 10 followers before I've been blogging for a week. Thank you for your encouragement!
