fish pond/aquatic garden:
when my kids grew out of their kiddie pool I spray painted it with undercoating
(black, rubberized- used for car body to prevent rusting) $5 /can . I used 2 cans.
I dug down in the ground & set it in, put in a small pond/fountain pump, then bought
some cheap goldfish (they grow big & even make it thru the winter) or if you want
a couple koi fish. Plant some plants around, a few plants set into the pool/pond.
the kids love to feed the fish breadcrumbs. this year I'm re-using the "wet banana" slip & slide that's no longer, adding more rocks on & around it to get a riverbed effect. I'd post a picture, but we have a couple feet of snow right now. can you tell I like gardening too?
Good Luck Whatever You Do!
Thanks, seleniebeanie! I had been thinking of doing something like that, and I even have a nice little place that would work perfectly, I just need to figure out the logistics, (and convince my husband I'm not crazy.) Lol
