To make a long story short, we did get someone else and finally made some progress until it started raining again this past week. So, work has halted until the rain stops but at least we know that the pond will hold water! Even though it's not yet dug out to depth, there's enough water there to attract a pair of Canada geese!

Of course, those are visitors we really didn't want to attract to the pond but they're protected by law here. Not sure what we can do to keep them away but will have to investigate as they're considered messy and pretty aggressive.
While we enjoy all sorts of wildlife, we want to be able to enjoy the pond in safety once it's finally finished!
