Lights! Camera! Action!

By Alternativeeden
With the garden gradually going to sleep now that November is here, we are making the final push to get the pond finished. With only a short list of tasks to complete before we can add water it feels like we are at long last on the home straight!

As Mark mentioned in this blog we had got the main electrical cable in place and safely buried under the pathway, so now it was time to get the installation of lights and actual power into the filter house itself. We had picked up most of the supplies last weekend and were ready to get things set up. Fortunately a good friend of ours is a qualified electrician so was able to oversee everything and make the final connections. Grub I am sure is well known to a number of our readers in the UK, being another Exotic Gardener and also a Koi keeper. Do check out his Facebook page - Grubs Jungle Hideout.

Like all the best workers much tea was drunk

This took quite a bit of time in working out where things would go and then getting the cable and sockets set up into the correct places, fortunately by having an expert on hand it all went like clockwork.

This feels like another key landmark, as now the filter house is finally complete and ready for setting up the filters and associated pipework.

So we have the Lights, the photos were taken on our Camera and the filter house is ready for Action!!
