ONLY A FEW DAYS TO THE POND TOUR. BE SURE TO GO ONLINE FOR DETAILS AT http://www.austinpondsociety.org
The 2012 Tour will include 21 private gardens and about 40 ponds with innumerable waterfalls and streams. The largest pond is a 40,000 gallon lily pond fed by artesian springs. The smallest is about 300 gallons and could be built in a weekend. Several gardens are Certified wildlife Habitats that make extensive use of native plants, and one has 350 feet of model railroads with three trains. There’s something for every gardening enthusiast.
