This pond is made out of an old bathtub that use to supply my horse drinking water when I was a kid. It's been in the family for about 36 years. It was old when we got it.(-:
Another look at the Copper Float Fish.
My DH helped me redo their cooper tubing stakes. I wanted them to look more twisty. Since I can't solder he had to do that part(-: I need to learn how to do soldering!! Click on pictures to make them larger(-: The fish were fun to make. They are made out of toilet floats and copper sheeting. I bought the floats new at the hardware store. It was an expensive project to make but it was well worth it(-: Someone also made them out of the black rubber floats and they looked really cute too. Like a big Molly fish(-:
This is a close up of the buckets hanging on the waterbed pond. I have them filled mainly with sempervivums because that is one hot place in the summer time! Semps just grow like crazy in the heat!
This is an over all view of the waterbed pond. The Sentimental Rose is blooming well and it smells so good! There are three clematis on the bed frame but I am not sure what they are. They do well here too. I planted some nasturtiums around the side of the pond and this morning I saw a snail attacking one of them. I had to step on it.
