Our pond garden is my favourite place on the farm at the moment. It is pretty and calming and full of wild life. It is right next to the front gate and driveway so since it is not hidden away we get to appreciate it every day.
Hubby made the pond himself and the garden around it is filled with some of his favourite plants including a cardboard palm (Zamia furfuracea), a grass tree (Xanthorrhoea), another cycad ( Cycas Circinalis I think) and a few other bits and pieces. This last cycad is quite old (we think) and my husband saved it from being bulldozed and it has been transplanted a few times. When we moved here 2 years ago we had to remove all the fronds and the ones you see in the picture below are the first ones it has put out since moving.

Well that's it for this part of the tour and I will attempt to show you more in the future.
