Dix Baines Studio Lower Pond 2013

Several years ago, Dix Baines decided that he wanted a pond. As an avid fly-fisherman, he had always loved all the elements of the river; the water, the vegetation, and definitely the fish. Why not have some of those elements in his own yard.  He began digging, with a shovel, into the heavy Colorado clay soil and finally after a year or so had what looked like the beginnings of a pond. In the summer of 2009,the digging was done, the liner was laid, and finally the water added. Little by little plants were put both in and around the pond and Koi were added to their new home. This first pond was such a success and enjoyed so much, that Dix actually added a second pond above the Lower Pond to provide additional water circulation, as the two ponds are connected by a stream. By 2013 this was the daily view, while eating lunch and dinner or any other time we had a minute to soak in the sights and sounds.  -Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines
