The pond
Yesterday was pond cleaning day for this year. It takes about ten hours start to finish because all the water, fish and plants have to be removed. I cut back the plants, repotted some and fertilized others. We put back less than half the plants we removed because they'd gotten so overgrown. The 27 goldfish spent the day in a smaller tub and they were happy to return to their (clean) home. The waterlilies should have more room now to spread out and bloom. They're my favorite water plants. Here are some photos from previous years. I'll be glad when it looks like this again.
