The photo doesn't do it justice. This image is a northern view of the pool/river as you approach the bridge. Along the bank of the river, there is a row of day lilies which have recovered from the transplanting and are back in bloom.
The next image is a view to the east, showing the pond at the base of the river (not seen is a small waterfall on the left that feeds the pond). There is still a bit of work to be done to finish up the pond area. By nightfall, I'll have added mulch to the flower beds. The area in front of the pond (not shown) is under construction. We're adding a bog pit to help with filtration (as you can see, the pond water appears murky).
