Austin Pond Society 22nd Annual Tour – N12

N12 Jody and David – Cedar Park

Enter this backyard and you’ll find yourself in an intimate relaxation spot—a charming pond, trickling water, tropical plants and colorful flower beds nestled under tall oak trees. A bathing mermaid surveys the pond from her perch at the waterfall while frogs, fairies and gnomes keep an eye on things from below. Red, yellow and peach hardy water lilies provide shade and hiding places for the goldfish. Ferns, pickerel and lizard tail give a lush, tropical feel to the area. The garden shed masquerades as a cottage, with a claw-foot bathtub on the front porch! If you’re looking for inspiration to start your own project, this is a good place to get ideas for a creative smaller, manageable oasis of your own.

As with all of these slides, if you click on any one of them it will enlarge and then use the side arrows to move the pictures along. Press  “Escape” to get back to normal.
