I hate the way the water in my flower vases turns murky and the flowers still look good. Is there some way I can keep the water from getting so bad?
Change the water frequently...your flowers will love it.
Put that little packet in that they give you with the flowers, and when you do change the water add a teaspoon of sugar, or an aspirin. They last.
When you are preparing a vase for a fresh flower bouquet there is sometimes a package of flower food that even helps retard the bacteria growth in the water in the vase. A drop of liquid laundry bleach works and doesn't hurt the flowers. I have heard that some 7up in the water helped keep the water clean and the flowers benefit from the sugar.

What are the colors and style of the house? What is the style of the yard? Formal, modern, rustic, etc. How close will this pond be to other structures in the yard such as porch, patio, outdoor cooking area, etc. How large is the yard? What is the size of the proposed pond? Depth? How much time will you have to maintain it? I am not trying to give you a hard time! There are many considerations that go into designing a pond and all the questions above need to be answered first.
Why is my gravy so lumpy?
The flour can clump up. Best to strain your gravy and use a whisk while adding flour.
