The Symbolism of the Peacock in Christian Art
Symbolism of the peacock feather dating to medieval times. #Peacock #PeacockFeather #Symbolism #History #Meaning
~Also the medieval bestiaries tell us that the peacock sheds its old feathers every year and grows newer, more brilliant ones each year, a sign of renewal, and the feathers were used to decorate churches at Easter and Christmas. You can also find the peacock in many mosaics and images in baptisteries of ancient Catholic churches in the East and West~
I love peacock colors

The Most Natural Organic Pool You Can Build Yourself There are many reasons to avoid chlorinated pools, most of all due to your health and the environment. Natural Pools allow nature to provide hygienic water for swimming. The vibrant ecology of plants and animals condition the water so there is no need for any chemical disinfectants. These pools are healthy for people and wildlife. In fact the water quality in a natural pool is so good, many are well within drinking water standards.

natural pools... theyre in your backyard. You'd install it and swim in it like a regular pool but its natural.. The plants keep it clean!
An elegant, eco-friendly solution that has had enthusiastic supporters in Europe for decades is the so-called natural swimming pool, which is slowly beginning to gain buzz in the U.S. Natural swimming pools, often called swimming ponds across the Atlantic, can be beautiful oases of greenery and sustainability, as well as safe, fun places to take a dip. Managed properly, natural swimming pools have crystal clear water and require no chemicals to maintain, as they are self-cleaning mini-ecosystems. "You can drink the water if you want to, and you don't necessarily have to take a shower," says Morgan Brown of Idaho-based Whole Water Systems, LLC. The natural pools designer says the systems also have lower maintenance costs than conventional pools, and their installation costs are not much more than standard designs.

Healthy swimming pond -- Plants instead of chemicals -- How many pounds of chemicals go into a typical swimming pool? Plants: A range of aquatic plants are used -- submerged (oxygenators), floating, shallow marginals, deep marginals, bog/marsh and waterside species. Whenever possible, it is best to use indigenous plants. Some examples of typical water plants: cattails, bulrushes, sedges, duckweed and water lilies.

A New Look: Natural Pools and Swimming Ponds
i feel like it's a necessity for my future home to have a swimming hole / natural swimming pool
Love to swim but hate the chlorine? Why not convert your pool into a natural pool that offers a chemical-free way to stay cool. Natural Swimming Pools recreate pristeen ponds and mountain pools found in nature. The water is kept sparkling clean by circulating it through an ecosystem of water plants. The result is a lush indigenous aquatic garden cradling a clear, natural pool, the water of which is perfectly clear, soft on the skin and infused with healing energy. No Salt, no chemicals
Natural Swimming Pools: Beautiful and great for an area not snake and alligator ridden . . .such as the American Deep South . . .So I will just have to enjoy this beautiful picture and pass along the idea . . .Best DIY Outdoor Family Projects | Babble

A natural swimming pool or natural swimming pond is a chemical free swimming area, that uses (generally) a reed bed system to filter and clean the swimming water. I want this!!!
I'm dreaming on this one... Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Pools, let nature clean the pool. Chemical free, plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water's surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regenerations zone and back into the swimming area.

"Natural" swimming pools. WANT! At least in some models, there is a pump that moves the water through the plant area, plants eat things you don't want, rocks and whatever filter the water, and it comes back out. Some have UV thingies to further kill bad stuff, and there is something to help get rid of mosquito larvae. Dream pool just needs to be a tad bigger!

natural swimming pools require minimum maintenance and cleaning. They also helps to give your home a natural and countryside look. Building natural pools are much easier and economical than artificial pools. You can plant small plants and trees, all around the pool to create an idyllic surrounding. You can even set up a small fountain or spring at one end of the pool, to give it a more natural look.
