Here little fish.. Here little frog...Here little turtle...

The Pond from the steps of the Mexican Primrose looking down Posted by Hello

The pond is the relaxing part of the garden. We built it for it's sound.
Another one of our sense,to be cultivated in the garden. I can be pulling weeds and hear the gentle water fall of the pond and the bird songs in the background and forget that I have a full time job, a house to clean, dinner to make, bills to pay. It is better than Paxil.

The fish in the pond are mostly ten cent goldfish that have grown to good size, a hybird cross of gold fish and koi, an intereting all black fish, where did he come from? The fish multiple and nature sees that they don't overpopulate. The best denfense agains too many fish is the spectacular Blue Heron that sweeps by the garden and stops in for lunch. "Yes, the fish are fresh today, Mr. Bird. " "Don't eat too many!" as I watch in horror and glee. Look, nature in my backyard and I am only 14 miles from the Bay Bridge that leads to one of the greatest cities in the world, San Francisco.
