When we moved into this house we kinda wondered what the big round area in our patio was originally. Over the years we've come up with various ideas and have done a couple of minor things to it, like planting wildflowers, putting the chiminea in it and bricking over part of it. In the Spring of 2003 we decided to dig it out and turn it into a Koi Pond.

We got it all pretty much done by the end of June... If we'd not gone to Tokyo it probably would have taken much less time.
