Backyard Barrels

This is a story of how some old, half barrels became a pond and home for Fish in a Barrel.

Our pond started out as a single, half wine barrel with a few plants in it, but standing water attracted mosquitoes. So we added some fish, then another barrel ... more fish ... we were hooked!

As we learned more about our half-barrel pond's ecosystem, we strived to imitate nature as closely as possible in an artificial environment. The result: the pond has become our sanctuary.

So, browse the following pages and play with the fish. Look for the hidden corners and secret paths that will lead you on a journey to ...? We invite you to explore our backyard.
