This was our “test” pond two years ago. We didn’t know if it would fill with water or not.
Indeed, it did. So this year we enlarged it. And no rain came. And it went to almost bone dry a few weeks ago. Fortunately, we had never put any fish in it.
To get a feel for the difference in size, note that the earlier version ends on the left partly past the front of the neighbor’s ugly barn.
Now to go near Tienda Inglesa, trim some willow branches, and try again to get trees started.
