2005 Pond Update

It's been 5 years now since the pond was built and it's still going strong.
Every summer we put a couple goldfish in the pond and 
winter them over inside in the aquarium. 
The birds love to bathe in the shallow waterfall. 
Squirrels and chipmunks take a drink when they get thirsty and 
occasionally a frog or two stop by for a dip.
