Thinking About Building a Pond?

Hiding in the back corner of the property at Casey's Garden Shop is the most beautiful pond!  If you aren't looking for it, you would probably miss it.  The next time you are there, if you haven't seen it yet, ask someone to point you in the right direction.  I'm sure they would like to show it off to you!



It is such a nice place that Mama duck even comes here for a relaxing afternoon.  There are so many fish in the pond, I could never count them.  The pond is deep enough for them to winter in the bottom.

Once you've found the pond, you'll also find the area where Casey's sells all kinds of water plants for ponds and bog areas.  If you don't have a pond, they'll even grow in a pot sitting on your deck or patio.  Try something new and experiment.  There are some really cool plants:



If you're interested in learning more about ponds, be sure to head out on Saturday to the Parade of Ponds, sponsored by the Central Illinois Water Gardeners.
