2 ponds here GD but we didn't build them, they're old gravel diggings, just holes with water that goes up and down in the wet and dry seasons. Very difficult to plant, only the toughest can cope. Lots of life though, newts,dragonflies (larvae in the pond) and other insects.

Love the erigeron, and the wall thank you.

and the pennywort leaves are so precise. I don't suppose I could grow that here but it would fit beautifully into gaps in some steps
