Some pictures from our yard!




The first one is our koi and goldfish pond. The second and third are flowers
and birdfeeders my hubby has painted. It was a nice weekend although very windy!
I had Sunday off but not Saturday. It was a long day at work knowing how
nice it was outside didn't help either. Hope you all had a great weekend!

I'm so glad you dropped by the Rosehaven Cottage blog! Your koi are such a lovely color. We have goldfish in our pond (shibunkin and comet mixes that were born there). I'll make sure and post some more photos of the pond soon.

Your yard looks very nice---I love the fence and the fabulous fish. I'll bet you have a great time watching them---so peaceful. I think I see a geranium---wish I could keep them alive cuz they are beautiful.

Hello Joy....Thanks so much for coming by today...it allowed me to come find this...I love your yard...ohhh I would love to have a pond in our yard..but I know I could never have fish in it because of our cat..seriously she would sit on the edge and try to dip the fish out..we have birdhouses on the fence and she will walk the fence top and literally stick her paw in the birdhouse and feel around! lol The poor bluebirds learn to not build in there years ago. I just love outdoor spaces..they just feed the soul like nothing else can...Hope you had a great day...please come back anytime!

Hi Joy! Your yard is lovely, and the birdhouse your husband painted is very good. The gold fish and koi pond looks great, did you guys build it yourselves? Well have a great day it's cloudy here but it makes the weather not so hot. Deb

Joy said...

I just helped him think about building it...lol He did it with some help from my brother. It was alot of hard work and digging.

Very pretty pictures. You obviously enjoy your yard. My dear hubby would be envious of the pond. He has visions of one in our yard at some point.
Thanks for popping in at Hospitality Lane.

Beautiful! I wish I had a goldfish pond; it feels so serene when I visit anyplace that has one.
