The Water Garden
I always wanted a small water garden in a whiskey barrel or in a pond form and finally had the opportunity to experiment with one last summer. After digging a hole in the hard stone ground while my husband "supervised" , I finally got to fill it up with water, put some water plants in and wait a week or two. We happily went down to the fish farm and I promptly bought some fish. A week later, to my horror, one was floating on the water. I learned after more research that goldfish need lots of water or a very good filtration method because they add alot of ammonia to a water feature.
