Papa's Garden Destroyed in the Storm!

When we finish the fish pond it was beautiful and all I wanted.

*If you missed how we got here, you can check it out at

However, not long after it was complete (May 2011) Hurricane Irene came through and really messed it up for us!!  It uprooted some tree's and unfortunately the roots from a Pine tore and punctured the liner.

Therefore, Papa's Garden was destroyed and we have to redo it all over again... ugh!  BUT at least that was the only thing that was destroyed... it could have been worse!!

A few tree's down can be taken care of.. thankful we didn't have any damage to our family, home, or cars.... However, we did have to suffer without power for 4 or 5 days, which really sucked as hot as it was!!

Temporarily, we had to do something to the pond so that our fish didn't die; but it looked  like a hott-mess for a little while as you can see here  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This version unfortunately never went much further than what you see because of limited time and finances; and stayed this way for a little too long (in my opinion).  However, when it finally got a makeover it was so PRETTY!!!

... I'm a little short on time tonight to share it, but I will share that with you all tomorrow night!!

Until then ~Ginny
