I'm glad the deer don't bother your pond. They don't bother mine either. I always worry about them walking on top of the net and breaking through. The deer around my house have taken to eating my water hyacinth. Grr.

My wife and I enjoy it emensly...we sit on the bench on a hot summer night ejoying a glass ( or 3) of our favorite red while we watch the fish chase mosquitoes on the surface...

you never realize how big a 10' X 8' by 2' deep hole is until you dig one by hand...

I think any body of water looks best rimmed with ice, no matter how small. I've wanted a small pond in my garden for so long....
