Now that the overnight temperatures are (mostly) above freezing, I’ve turned on the garden water, which means I could also turn on the pump in the small pond for the stream next to the fountain garden. It needs the water to be on to top it up via an automatic filler valve.
Here is the small pond; you can see the pump underwater, and filler valve on the edge (I might be modifying that soon):
Going upstream a bit, the lower stone bridge:
Looking downstream, with the upper stone bridge in the foreground, the lower bridge barely visible through the tree, and the cat house in the background:
A couple more shots of the upper bridge:
Just beyond the bridge:

I hope you enjoyed this look at the stream. I’ll do the big pond waterfall in the future.
