Changing the Japanese Gardens
After a couple of years of having challenges with the ponds in our Japanese Gardens, Kent has finally come up with a new plan. He has been knocking out the big ponds. He will make them into dry ponds. We are keeping the waterfall, but it will just drop below the path to the teahouse. This also means digging out the upper pond. Fortunately, Richard and Connor Lindahl came over last Saturday and helped do hard work for about 5 hours in 98 degree heat. These are the pictures of the lower and upper ponds as well as what the new center pond looks like in front of the teahouse.
