Saturday Snapshot - Backyard Pond


I'm visiting my sister this weekend and admiring her backyard pond. Isn't it pretty? Somehow I didn't get that same gardening gene.

Lovely and peaceful looking.

Don't feel bad, I missed out on the creativity gene in my family:)

needs koi... to rid mosquito larvae....

Trish said...

It has goldfish and they're doing doing a pretty good job of keeping the water clear of bugs.

Very nice!
I haven't got the garden gene either, neither has the rest of my family for that matter, but I enjoy looking at other people's gardens.

Somehow that gene skipped over me too. I love garden pictures and the serenity of them.

That's lovely - my pond is covered in green weed, but that's what I'd like it to look like. My Snapshot is at http://chriscross-thebooktrunk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/parisian-pictures-take-two.html

That's impressive. I tried with a pond once but gave up, took out the liner and just put in a ground cover instead. Sigh.

The gardening gene missed me, too; my mother had beautiful gardens.

What a lovely one you've featured. I could sit there all day.

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Lovely pond! Ours usually has fish in it but within 2 days of putting 6 gold fish in this year they had disappeared!! Raccoons we suspect!

I love to sit in gardens like this, but I can't imagine putting in the effort for the upkeep. Here's Mine

That's so pretty! I don't have the gene either...

It is gorgeous - it looks like a great place to relax.

Alyce said...

That is some definite skill - gorgeous pond!

Carolyn Wilker said...

Looks pleasing to the eye. Being a gardener myself, I know the work it takes to make such a place. We don't have a pond though.

Oh! How lovely. I hate it when other people get the gardening gene, too. Great shot. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine:http://zaraalexis.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/saturday-snapshot-07-07-2012/

Beautiful! There can never be too many flowers in the yard. I have the garden gene, but it can be a curse at times. I have a lot of flowers and with the hot summer I'm constantly watering to keep them alive.

Arti said...

This is a beautiful garden. And about that missing gene, you should be glad since you can enjoy the fruits without the labor... so to speak. ;) And I'm sure your sister loves your visit.

Very nice. My green thumb is non existent so I'm impressed. Happy Summer♫♪

Cheryl @ Tales of the Marvelous said...

That's gorgeous. I always love a garden with a pond.

Shrink to Fit said...

It's a very beautiful pond- I didn't get the gardening gene either, but can admire it in others.

Bev Hankins said...

Oh, how very lovely! I don't have that gene either...I wish could afford to hire gardeners, though, because I love a good garden and lovely flowers. I just can't make them happen.

Here's my Snapshot.

Absolutely beautiful!

Laura BurgandyIce said...

Wow!!! That's absolutely gorgeous... I wish I could grow things!! I'm a danger to every green thing I pass by!! (Feels like!)

Wrighty said...

Oh, how beautiful!! I could spend hours there and would love a pond... It makes me feel better to be outside in the sun and flowers. I enjoy puttering in the garden and do OK with it but my mom can make anything grow. Thanks for sharing!

What a great garden! Looks like a great place to entertain or sneak off with a book. :)

Sim said...

Oh, that's just lovely. Magical and romantic. Funny how so many of us book bloggers didn't get the 'gardening gene'? I wonder if we're just too busy reading to water?

laughingwolf said...

laughingwolf said...
