Great pictures. Is the statue holding an umbrella?  Anytime you need a free rolling creek, just let me know. ;)

Lol. You wonder why I say all of the cell phone pictures are too small. I can't see. I looked at it on the nook and now I see its a Payne Stewart type cap. With all the rain lately, my mind has gone straight to umbrellas. ;)

Anticipate any problems with natural predators? Looks like you're in a suburban setting but still plenty of critters out there!

Tombo, do you have to "treat" the water?

Yea I put a product in there when I first filled it to take chlorine out for fish. Are you talking about something else?

No that's it. Do you have to worry about algae or other water issues or will it self clean.

I have a UV sterilizer which kills the algae and prevents the green water. Then filter that cleans the water

Mowed the backyard this morning. What a mess, I scraped out a bucket full of chopped wet grass sludge from under my mower when I was done. Mud tracks over a few soggier areas. I even used the weed whacker over the mower in a few spots.

^ I'm still good for a few more days. I did a cut on Saturday. I hope it dries out some for a late Sunday cut. Will need to use max height for deck.

I am about to cut mine now.  My neighbor is not making it easy on his side, he got new sod laid down and has been running the sprinkler every day for the last 10 days, rain or rain.
