At long last the pond is finished. Yes the slabs are meant to look like that, we will be adding some ground cover plants to fill the gaps in due course. We also took a shine to a garden arch that we spotted in the local DIY store.

As you can see from the photo we worked late into the night installing it. The plan is to have roses climbing over it. The photo was taken from the new concrete pad where a shed will be going, again in due course.

Of course a pond wouldn't be complete without residents, so we'd like to introduce you to some of them.

You can see the three golden koi, the golden tench and two A. N. Others who are also some sort of koi (I'm not an expert, my son's mate is.) There are another three koi, one of them silver and two green tench somewhere.

They'll have to learn to be quick eating mind you, Toni keeps stealing their food from the top of the water!
