Welcome to my backyard!
Here in Texas, we generally call them "stock ponds". The farm animals use this pond for their drinking water.
So, fish are the bonus that comes with the watering hole. Oh yes, and frogs, too....
In the summer months, my pond also has beautiful yellow water lilies that bloom. If you are wondering if the lilies are native to the pond, the answer is no. I simply threw in a handful of bulbs I had cleaned out of an overcrowded water garden. They are just as spectacular as this photo.
