garden pond does not have to be a dark, ugly, wet hole in the ground
once the plants die and the fish go dormant!
With just a little bit of imagination it can be beautiful all winter
and even add to your outdoor decorations by being lit just right
A few ideas:
Place an Angel Statue on an upside down flower pot or other platform
into shallow end of pond.
Illuminate the statue with under-water lighting. Use green or red
lenses for this special season!
Put rope lights around the perimeter of the pond and float a few
Water Lettuce replicas inside the pond.
Scrunch up some red cellophane and form loosely into 6 - 8 inch
balls. Float these among the Water Lettuce replicas.
Add a floating light or two.
Float 3 or 4 "Duckies" and adorn them with red ribbon around the
neck and maybe even a tiny Santa hat.
With these tips and some ideas of your own your pond can be the
envy of the neighborhood and a beautiful focal point for your garden
even in the dead of winter.
