  1. Your pond is beautiful, but I am mad because you have a magnolia tree. I want one so bad!!! They are beautiful. Have fun at the conference. I’ll be changing my email address on the 4th, so I’ll let you know what the new one is then, k? Love ya, Deb

  2. Thanks for sharing your photos, I love koi ponds and yours is beautiful, especially since your husband built it!

    Thanks for stopping by our blog… we love making new bully friends! I can’t wait to read your books. I’m an avid reader… which has recently slowed down since Sugar joined our family (she’s been known to munch of books!)

    🙂 Martine & Sugar

    • Thanks, Martine!
      Yes, that was his last major project before his MS kicked his a**.
      It’s our favorite place to sit and relax. Although, once it gets too warm I sit out there by myself. It’s great place to enjoy that first coffee of the day.


  3. I particularly like the pond view from under the magnolia tree. At one time, magnolias came to feature in a novel I was working on.

    Great stuff.

  4. Pics are as pretty as I remember them and I like the new ones you added as well. Those Koi are neat…do you have them trained to eat out of your hand?

  5. What a beautiful garden! Thanks for sharing it with us.

    And the painting is pretty special. What a kind thing to do, to give that to you.

    • We were pretty devastated back in 2006 when some nasty person dumped battery acid in the pond and killed all our Koi. It took a year to get the pond back and alive with new Koi, frogs, and plants.

      The sweet young man who gave us that painting of Koi brought us a greater gift than he could have ever imagined. He gave us back our faith in our fellow man.

  6. Your yard and pond are lovely. What an oasis, but that frog is huge. I saw your site on another site, and my heart went out to you and your husband. I’ve been living with MS 29 years and started a blog on tips for living with it. If you get a chance, please check out Mutley’s Great Adventure on wordpress, Best to you.

    Thanks, my yard and garden are my sanctuary.
    We’re talking about a pig headed Curmudgeon who has been living with his MS about the same length of time as you.
    He will not change his diet at all. I’ve tried. I completely changed my diet after my heart attack, but he won’t change a thing. I’ve tried but to avail, he’ll do what he wants.
