is an apt name for the fanciful
gazebo-like structure at the entrance.
Our effort so far has been

it does need a coat of wood preservative.

The pond lives!
We eliminated the parrot feather,
then the duckweed,
and then the dreaded azolla.
Now the water lilies (and pickerel) are happier,
as well as the pair of turtles, fish, frogs, ducks,
and an occasional heron.
