Small water garden.

Little tired with brown color outside, I decided to browse through unpublished pictures and I found one set I'd like to share - it reminds me of paradise and first palindrome said by Adam which was "Madam, I'm Adam". (what palindrome is look here)

Looking for inspiration and new backyard landscape ideas? After Christmas preparations’ madness will be over, it will be a good time to plan changes in the garden for coming year – if you look for different gardening ideas – this post is for you.
So, today I share the inspirations on how to combine water and stone garden. Do you think to build a pond? Maybe a fish pond? So this garden design idea could be great for you.

In the summer I visited wonderful nursery, that has its own self tending backyard pond. I visit this place few times a year – just to see how they take care of it and how it is changing with the flow of seasons.
Their yard landscaping has matured already and their pond doesn’t need any pond filter – this function is overtaken by plants. If plants cover 2/3 of the pond – that is the time awaited by every pond owner – when fish pond becomes self-maintained and there is no need additionally to filter the water.
Looking for landscape ideas that will make your flat, boring garden – more diversified and more interesting? In this case entire region and area are fully flat – no hills. The designer of this pond made a great job – it is main attraction of the nursery. It includes cascade and fountains, there is a big hill just next to the pond – somebody digging out the hole for the pond, left the soil next to it.
Planting at the pond and on the hill makes it a very decorative part of the garden.

This is one of the hills - can you see this Sorbaria pendula - looks like it was created for this kind of planting on rapid slopes - reminds beautiful scarf dancin on the wind...

I'd love to sit beside this pond for a while with a box of watercolors and some paper to see what I could capture. Thanks for the mini-vacation.
