With the thermometer rising it got me thinking about water features in the garden. Almost every house we have ever owned we had water features in the gardens. Mostly they were koi ponds with lovely koi fish, waterlilies and either a small fountain or waterfall. The girls loved watching the fish swim happily in the ponds and they would help me feed them. One summer we paddled out on Kemah Lake where my friend lived and harvested our own water lilies-the girls had alot of fun doing that! I am really missing the trickling water sound and I am going to look into a small garden pond I can put on the patio here at our rental house. The sounds of the water are very relaxing and in this weather would atleast make me feel cooler. The birds and butterflies love water features too! I went on line and found some really cool ideas on the hgtv.com website and I thought I would share them with you.
Stay cool my friend!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
