Fountain is working by solar power !

The fountain has been placed ih the fish pond, the leak has been fixed, now all is "hunky-dory" in my opinion. What a clever fellow he is !! He has been saving an old solar panel that he salvaged from the dump many years ago because he knew that one day the pond water would need re-circulating.


All I want now is for the water lillies to grow and flower, it should look BEAUTIFUL.


The most important thing left for me is, get those darned weeds off the cliff face. Looks as if I'll have to get the ladder as some of them are just too high for me to reach.


Then there is this delightful bush (a native) planted last autumn that has come out in bloom, just to the right of the pond, so delicate and a lovely colour.




I like this plant so much that I decided to add a few more pics. (lol)

Hello Olive
That area is looking quite nice - as you say he's a very clever man (when he puts his mind to it lol)
Nothing gets away from our tip these days - if its salvageable they sell it
Take care

The native plant is so beautiful. Fingers crossed for the solar pumping for the pond.

My Folks have a solar panel on their roof to heat the water - over summer it often heats the water so well that the hot water cylinder gurgles and sometimes even "boils over" onto their roof!
