If you need a moment of relaxation in your day, I offer you a few photos of my back garden pond. We recently cleaned both ponds which were a lot of work to empty out and start from scratch again. It had been a while since we had not had a chance to do this not so fun job, but once we filled up the ponds again we could see the koi and other kind of fish we have, being so rejuvenated and playful if we can describe any fish that way. We also noticed our red dragonflies are back as well making this a real looking pond with nature on the outside too.
Lately we had found a wonderful pond place to get plants for it as there are 4 typical plants any pond must have in order to have sufficient oxygen, preventing too much algea and so on. So we bought so much for both ponds but all of the necessary stuff was purchased to add to our ponds it was truly fun to see the fish go to all the novelty being added for them. It was so much fun, we caught ourselves sitting and watching them for over 30 minutes, we also have minnows, koi, and unknown fish that are growing so quickly. You will get to see 3 kinds below the other ones were camera shy. The front pond has the koi fish in it. Not the pond I am showing you today.

I hope you have enjoyed the relaxation that I get from visiting my ponds daily. I discover new buds coming onto the surface daily which is making this so much of an anticipation to the next day discovering more lilies surfacing. Each lily is lasting about 3 days, it closes at night to re-open the next day at sunrise.
For those of you who are following me and have been for years, I will tell you that my back garden frog has not been seen even once this year. I have a hunch that it is coming for its swim much earlier, before we get up in fact. So I will have to make sure to get up earlier this week and sneek a peak to surprise it.
Tomorrow my next card to share will be once again about Lilies. Tis' the season for Lilies, not Christmas cards in June.... LOL
