We have a small pond in our backyard, and we love it. It is so peaceful to sit by the pond, listen to the water and watch the little fish swimming around.
We have been planting sedum around it to try to make it look more natural.
We have a bunch of water plants: water hyacinth, calamus, star lily, water lettuce and water lilies.
Here is the water lettuce and some creeping thyme. The lettuce was damaged during a recent pond attack. An animal has been visiting our pond at night (we think it's a raccoon) and munching on our plants. We just hope he doesn't eat our fishies.
