I like the way the pons-side planting is developing. Wildlife likes it, too.

I've just got an app enabling easy resizing of photos on the iPad, thank goodness. I've found it really hard to post photos until one.

Looking well good guy.
Run photos through any of the photo editors and you will get a compress option for e-mails, can drop by as much as 80%.

That looks so beautiful, Good Guy......I am trying to convince myself that I can take care of a pond......I'm so afraid of ending up with a smelly stagnant mess.......
Is this the first time you have made a pond?
On a scale from 1-10 how difficult is it to make and maintain ?

Thanks for all the compliments. I have loads of photos of the pond through the seasons and I'll post some more when I've time.
The photo editor app I have on the iPad doesn't seem to have a resize function and although the iPad bumf says it will resize for you when posting, repeated attempts to post pics to this site have resulted in a message telling me that the file is too big.
How do I go about posting a number of pics in the one operation?
Sive, it's not rocket science! More a matter of "go for it!" I'll post an account of the building and maintenance another time.

To upload multiple photos either hold down the control button when selecting them or click on the choose file button, a second one appears once you have uploaded your first photo and so on. As previously mentioned, use some of the photo editing programs such as Microsoft Office Picture Manager to compress the photo down in memory size.

Hi Sive. I've posted an account of my pond-building in the water garden section, with some photos. I think the chief difficulty with building a pond lies in one's head! I know that's where I found it hardest. In the end it's really just about deciding.
The end result is pure pleasure.
