I've asked for a pond for several years now - and have the perfect place for it.
Between the extended patio and a garden next to the pool, we have a large chunk of grass that was just a pain to try to mow. No matter how you did it you blew grass all over something.
My dream is finally coming true - my sweetheart of a husband bought me this for my birthday...

and some people call them Naked Ladies.
Actually they are lycoris squamigera.
These pale pink lilies peek out of nowhere every August just around my birthday.
It is nicknamed Naked Lady or Surprise Lily because the flowers appear on sturdy, leafless stems in late summer, after the leaves have withered and disappeared from the spring.These bulbs came from my grandmothers garden many years ago. I've moved them to every house I've lived in.
Every year they produce even more bulbs giving me huge groups of flowers.
