What a beautiful week we have had. Temps in the 70s. Sun. That golden color that autumn brings as the sun sets. I love it! Here are a few more photos from me. Reuben and Sheldon looking out the front window. Hey, I washed windows this week! First time in….I forget…
For the past couple of weeks I have had my koi pond partially covered with a net. We had some really cold wet rainy weather and I knew my maple tree would be dropping leaves into the pond. Luna loves to sit on the net and watch the koi. She’s also very hard to get a picture of, because every time I crouch to take the pic, she comes running over for pets.
So, it was such a gorgeous day today that I knew I had to clean that pond out and get it ready for winter. I got the net off with all the leaves removed and raked and then hauled all of the water plants out. Only the potted water lily will survive the winter. Then I scooped and scooped wet leaves out of the pond. I grabbed a frog a couple of times. He was a bit miffed at me. I got the net back on, so it should be good for winter with only a couple more filter washes. There are three koi, two pond comets and two frogs living in there.
The chicks are getting big! Darwin watched them for a long time yesterday and they pretty much ignored him the whole time. And finally, some late blooming flowers. I have this one sedum that is so pale pink….it’s really pretty. And the last one is a zinnia.
