Pond update?

Yesterday we looked at the non-pond water features in my garden. Today we'll look at some deer -- no, of course we'll look at the pond. Well, sort of.

Something strange here. I don't remember planting a tree in front of the pond...


And of course I didn't. There's one there though.

Well, part of one.

It's been a little over a week and I still haven't cut this branch off.  Maybe not seeing the pond is a good thing -- out of sight, out of mind?

I'm having a hard time coming up with plants that will work around the back edge of the pond. The Colocasia just can't manage without extra water and I really hate chaining hoses together and dragging them back there. The petasites has almost dwindled to nothing btw. A sad loss, but it's just not practical back there.

So I suppose I'll be dealing with some branches in the next few days. As if I needed something else to cut down -- there are still bamboo canes to remove!

Aw, rats! Nothing like an unexpected branch falling into your pond to take up gardening time.

Well, an excuse to go garden, right?

I was just wondering how your pond was doing! Too bad about the tree branch, but I can't wait to see what you do with it next. Could you leave the edge unplanted for a season, just to see what it might look like?
