Building a Pond

There are lots of ways to build water falls and ponds, here is a site I ran across  to they ask questions as to what you want your pond to be like.

Middle Waterfall To Bottom Pond

Here is where the middle pond flows into the lower pond. I have more work to do to cover up the liner around the edges but I really like the way the waterfall turned out coming into the pond. To make it I overlapped the edge of the membrane from the falls with the edge from the pond. I applied black silicone to the overlap and it is just loosely overlapping the bottom.

No Mosquitos

The only good thing I can say has been good this year about the lack of rain is the absence of mosquitos or 'mooses' as my wife's english uncle called them. Not having mosquitoes in England he said he is not coming back to visit in the summer any more but will only come here in the fall. When he was here a couple of years ago he would get a real infection with each bite. He learned quickly to get the bug spray on or stay inside.
Even though there has not beeen much rain I am surprised at how few mosquitoes there have been
