Pond surrounded by well-established garden planting. I expect this is teeming with life.

do marigolds around the outside border of the beds like these purple flowers to deter pests.
"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"
That deep silence has a melody of its own, a sweetness unknown amid the harsh discords of the world's sounds. ~Paul Brunton
Anthemis 'Blomit', or Golden Marguerite, Orlaya grandiflora, or White Lace Flower , and Nassella tenuissima -
Queen Annes Lace, so pretty at the fence.
Queen Anne's Lace grew in abundance, and we happily collected them for fancy parasols for our dolls and Barbies.
