I put some pots of plants on our deck in pots...
I used taro, umbrella palm, water lettuce and
duck weed. (Ilove duck weed) The need very little
attention as they grow in water. Sorry, I have to add the pics in seperate threads, donno how to do it all at once.

This one has the same stuff in it, and is several
days behind the one on the pond deck.

This is a suet feeder we made from a bird feeder.
We actually put in on the pole so that we
had someplace to grab and we stepped off the pond deck
The woodpeckers love it. We trimmed our walking stick tree and wrapped it around the pole. The birds love it
cause they have a place to land and look around before
going to the suet. I just started to train the vinca
vine around it, soon it will grow up the pole.

I love your garden! It looks like the perfect place to just sit, relax, and enjoy the sounds of nature. Your fish look so big and healthy and the plants are so lush.
