The Newly built Kameya Pond has been running for couple weeks now, and I've added some plants, decor, and lighting through out the pond to fit my personal taste...natural and fun... ^_^

The pond's entryway...

The pond's side view...

I've added another layer of white fence to cover the brick wall, the white will go with the white vinyl patio cover on the side very well...

The complete view of the pond...I've also found two logs from the fater-in-law's backyard and placed them in the pond so the turtles can have extra basking areas...

Here is the pond's main attraction...The "KAMEYA FALL"

There are many holes between the rocks, so I used little plants as filler to fill up those holes...

The top view of the pond...the two logs also serve as a little dam to keep the water lettuce away from the drain pipe ...

Because of the litte dam, the water body around the drain area is quite calm where you can see the bottom of the pond...

Taking shots of the pond from a very low angle close to the water surface...

I've also tied a string of solar LED lights to the electrical pipe on the side to illuminate the pond at night...

Oh, James...that is just SO pretty! I'll bet it's very peaceful sitting there during the day and listening to the water.

It is amazing!!

Thank you so much for sharing :)

....I was really waiting to see pics of the residents, though! Who lives in there?

It's just beautiful. Fantastic! Where are the turtles? I have the same log with the three turtles on it by my burtle garden. The solar one's that light up at night.
