New Life

It just amazes me how a new life starts. Whether it be a human, another animal, or a plant. It is all equally amazing to me. This is the time of year where so much new life is finding an opportunity to be among the living. On a daily basis it pops up everywhere.

Adding A Planter To The Pond Edge

When constructing my pond, I purposely made my pond edging "soft". What I mean by that, is that the edges were not permanently bound to any kind of structure, making them flexible and easy to work with. There is a problem with that, and it is exactly that, they are not permanently mounted and are flexible. So a soft edge is good and bad for the same reason. Having an edge that is easy to "redo", gives you ability to easily change the pond shape or easily modify the edge at any time.
