Regular Pure Florida readers know that my pond goes up and down and that I "tweak" it from time to time. The last major tweaking I did was in the 2011-2012 winter when I excavated the then dry pond bottom.
|The photo above shows the excavation in progress. By the time it was over, I had created 3 shallow basins with dikes made of the excavated pond sediments.|
|The sticks projecting up from the pond bottom are dead dog fennel stems. During a dry period, the entire pond bottom was one big fragrant forest of feathery dog fennel plants.|
|Here is the pond this morning, 8 August 2013.|
That's right ... go ahead and say it ...WOW!
|The long view.|
