Dreaming of a backyard pond...

One thing on my wish list is to
have a backyard pond.
Since I was a little girl I wanted one.
My dad talked about building (do you BUILD a pond?)
a pond for a long time, but he just never got around to it.
So... I've been bugging my husband to build one.
So far he hasn't gotten around to it yet either.

Our house is for sale and hopefully we'll be moving soon.
I've been house hunting. I LOVE house hunting!
One thing I have to have is a nice big yard with nice big trees.
A nice big yard for a nice pond!

I want a pond with fish and frogs and turtles and
pretty plants and
pretty rocks.
And... a bench to sit on to watch the fish swim.
I'm pretty sure it would relieve any stress I was feeling.

One day I'll blog about MY pond
and how my husband and I built it
with our own two hands.
But for now I'll just download
google images of other peoples ponds.

Hi Lora! I just signed on to my blog and saw that you became a Follower. Thanks! I can see that we both have a love of ponds. Kind of a funny story about ours....I had begged for one for years. One day about 5 years ago my husband went and rented a bobcat tractor. He started digging and soon we had this huge pond. If you look back at older posts you can see how pretty it is in the summer. We love it. :)

Stacey... yes I saw your GORGEOUS pond after lurking around looking at your blog for a few days. I guess that's what made me start thinking again about the pond I want to have one day. Thanks for saying hi.
