And now for the Videos :-)

Its REALLY old though. About 4 years... Does it still count??? Its kinda a walk through from the drive way, through the front door, into the dining room and ends off in the kitchen. Basically wanting to show that the pond can be viewed in any room on this side of the house :-)



Bit of a silly video, but it captures the sounds of the pond frogs at night. So soothing :-)



And finally the garden :-)



Hope you enjoy :-)

Thanks Guys. The reason we bought the place was because of the garden. Its 5500 square feet. (About 1800 sq m)

But man we did ALOT of work to it.

Neli like you, I WANT THAT FISH LOL. Will be my first ever real koi, not one of those cheapies you get. Not that I dont love my babies, but its now time for some true blood :-)

Dont care if I won the big garden or small pond - I want that beauty cheers

This is the before pics of the pond: And yes, that is a guy with a jack hammer bounce

Well duuuh. Wouldn't you be scared to compete against Joe? How can anyone compete against the bonsai.....

Flowers, my god, also have thousands of those...

I think Paul is going to need bigger servers to host all the pics lol.

Costa, why don't you just give Neli, Joe and I each a prize 1. For effort, and 2. For being the first ones to enter. Surely you don't want the 3 of us clawing each others eyeballs out...

Do you???? No

Be carefull guys. I know someone with a crop duster plane. I wouldn't hesitant to ask him to fly over your places with poison that will turn your gardens from lush tropical paradises into THE FRIKKEN KALAHARI DESERT!!!!!

You have been warned!!!!

Hi All,

It seems to me that most people have been discouraged from entering this competition, after seeing Nelli's Large garden. We have decided that there will be two competitions -- a prize for large gardens and a prize for smaller gardens. It is still early days and we all have to get over winter, so cheer up guys , the competition only closes end November. The winning gardens will be judged on their overall charm and appeal, and guys ........this time size does not matter !!! lol! lol! lol! .
Will post photo and video of the other fish to be won.

And please remember you have to post a video of your pond and garden as well . : Very Happy Very Happy

I am lucky my garden is big...Would not have liked to compete against Joe....U Lee are trying to be clever now.... Shifted from Joe's category to mine...he he he!
But if I dont get a fish I for sure will clow someone's eyes...He he he!
So I love your idea of Costa giving Us each a fish...He he he!
I think if We bug him enough He might agree....
I am not scared of your plane...maybe Joe...I am too far for U to turn my garden into Kalahary....he he he!
