A Project As Big As Reality
With my family's help I began my backyard project during the summer of 2006.  We hauled in a lot of dirt and dug a hole.  I got a little ahead of myself.  I started planting growing things too.
By fall, others began seeing the shape of my vision.  There wasn't enough summer to accomplish what I wanted to get done, but we did get the waterfall in eventually.
By the end of summer 2007 my fish pond became a reality.  The pair of adult goldfish provided us with an ample supply of baby fish and to our surprise a hummingbird pair moved in.
Now I could sit by the pond, listen to the water cascading, and enjoy the colorful array of flowers.  Birds and butterflies became frequent visitors.
