more old photos

I've spent a lot of time lately going thru old photos.
I have boxes full of them. We always took tons of pictures on our travels. We've covered a lot of the US. Most of the pictures were of scenic shots. After many years, a lot of them look the same. So I've been throwing out tons of them, saving just the ones that really mean something.
I've also started scanning the older ones. You know from the 35mm days, before digital cameras. I love digital cameras, except now I take even more pics.


I'm also uploading some to Webshots .
A picture hosting site.
And it Free! I always like Free!
I like Websots over some other picture sites
because I can up load 50 pics at a time
instead of only 6 or less.
Some of the pictures I ran across,
were the building of my pond and
Some stepping stones I made.
I built the pond in 2001 I think.
Here's a link to the album for any one who's interested.
pond

The pond is approx. 15 x 30 feet.
I started it in the summer, and finished
it the following summer.



I also made some stepping stones.
The ones in the garden centers were too small.
I wanted ones more like 2-3 feet across.
Here's the link for the making
of the stepping stone.

I'm still going to post pics of Craig and I thru the years, but I've got more pics to go thru first, and of course Craig already told me he has to approve of the final set. So I don't embarrass him I guess.

  3. The pond is a work of art. You must have spent a lot of time working on that. We had ponds at our last two homes, but since this is a condo.. we can't put one in the back yard.

  10. Does it have fish? I have a smaller one and fish over winter just fine (gold fish that re rapidly getting big and fat). Damn coons try poaching occasionally and I have to chase them off.

  13. Color me jealous.
    That is awesome, Wayne.
    You should submit it to garden magazines. Serious.
    Makes me want to plan my water feature.

    I had a beautiful water garden in Dayton. I miss it. You really did a great job.
