Have you ever wanted to add a pond to your garden? Bridget Ludwig and her husband built their own oasis and have shared photos with us. 

"My husband and I visited Longwood garden in Pennsylvania for many years and took a few classes there about building a pond and about water lilies. I got inspired and started creating the shape and flower choices and read many books on "how to". My husband and I built the pond three years ago and now the flowers have flourished. We have 5 pink and white lotus which can get six foot tall. There are many flowering pond plants which sit on a ledge inside the pond. We created a walkway and surrounded both sides with cannas and roses. There is also a beautiful arbor with a bench so we can talk and feed the fish."
