After Darrell's girls took us out for a Father's Day lunch, we got back to work on the pond.  There wasn't very much we needed to do, so it went fairly quickly.

Then it was time to put the water in.  I was so excited (and a little scared).

I used the spray nozzle to hose down all of the rocks and clean off any residual dust and dirt.  That was fun for a little while.   Then I put the hose in and went about doing other things.

I haven't turned the pump on yet because I want the dirt to settle first.  So I haven't been able to get a really good idea of how the waterfall will work.  I did put the hose up at the top and let the water run down, but it's not the same.  But, it looks pretty cool!

Starting to add the water and rinse off the rocks.

The hose is propped there, it's filling itself.

Hard to tell with such harsh light, but this is my view from where I sit on the deck - so nice.

Bentley is such a curious cat.  He had to taste the water about three times.

The plan is to finish it up on Tuesday.  I need to get a few more coping stones and start looking at plants.

So exciting!
