Culling the herd the wrong way.

I’ve been pond mucking, removing and relining and restocking. As we all know, I know how to have a great time.

IMG_0779It still looks pretty much like this, but now there are fish.  I bought 10.  Lost 2 to old age or illness.  Lost 3 more some other way.  Attrition can be brutal.  I believe either the racoons, owls, hawks, or who knows who have been at it.  I finally went to buy water plants.

L*we’s nor H*ome D*pot have anything at all like that.  I even checked with Wallyworld.,  Nada.  Finally, I was talking to Chris and Karen at church this morning and they told me about a pond place nearer.  I looked it up on my smart phone (thank you smartphones) and proceeded there after church.  I got my plants, came home and put them in.  We’ll see how effective they are at protecting my idiot fish.  I will post pics of the water plants after they have made themselves tohome.    Right now they’re on their sides and look just sad.

Have a good one!  My soundtrack for today?  “Don’t Let the Rain Come Down” because we are currently having our monsoon season.

    IF you have time and the opportunity arises (or in this case a fish rises) I would love to see a picture of your pond with plants and critters! Some day I want to have a pond and a fountain. Love you!

    Monsoon season? Winter just ended, or so it seems. Hope your pond comes together and all the flora and fauna live together happily ever after! xox

    Hope everyone gets settled and happy asap! And that the owls, raccoons etc leave everything alone. It’s gonna be wonderful!

    So much work! Hopefully, it was worth it. How many fish do you have left now? *L*
