Do you remember my new patio pond?
If not you can click here to see it...
Today... was an exciting day pond side:-)
The new baby koi moved in....
This was the feisty one,
very eager to get out of the bag!
They are just around four inches long...
Like an angel from above...
My favorite is this snowy white one..
so bright he seems to glow!
Eventually they will outgrow the little pond,
and I will move them to Mike's pond.
By then.. I hope to have frogs and tadpoles moving into this pond.
This year is the first year I have had tadpoles
in another tiny pond in the garden.
(yes... we like water features a lot!)
So out of the bags the little guys swam,
and under the plants they hid,
not to be seen again today...
So since I was there by the pond,
I floated a Rose in My Lady's basket..
A beautiful one with pink ruffled petals,
The name still eludes me...
and... I floated some Snow Bell blooms on the water..
maybe the koi will be enticed to come out and play?
Here is a close up of the floating flowers.
Where their petals touch the water,
there is a reflection of the lattice above,
it's reflection is bent into a spiderweb like design!
Today I am joining...
