Pond Society Tour - continued, part 3

Previews: . . . . . .

House 11

This was probably my favorite of all the ponds, because of the natural look they had created on bottom of the pond, and for the lovely stream that cascasded down the hill.

This also was a very small pond, but they had a lovely yard with beautiful flowers and the most adorable puppy. :D

Haha! The puppy's name was Odie, and he was gnawing on the wing of this angel statue ... until the owner caught him. :P

Right about now we started getting rushed because we only had one hour left and four houses to see - so I didn't take as many pictures.

House 15

This house had a HUGE backyard, with gorgeous perennial gardens all around, so I'm really sorry that I didn't get to spend more time looking around and taking pictures here since we were so rushed at this point.

House 16

This house had a series of decks enclosing the pond and two waterfalls. Sadly they had just lost all their koi to a marauding otter. A good reason most of the other houses we visited had tightly fenced-in yards. :(

This is looking down from the top of the stairs.

And this is looking up at the house from the pond level.

Everyone we met was so gracious and excited to talk about their yards and ponds and fish. It was a delightful day in every way. ^.^
