Restocking the pond
Our large holding pond suffered from the dry summer last year and totally dried up. Our fish became an easy catch for the blue herons in the ever-lowering water. We had released 6 goldfish into the pond many years ago, and there was a sizeable population.
This photo was taken in January, and we were surprised how quickly the pond filled again.
With thanks to Melody Johnson (http://www.fibermania.blogspot.com/ 5/16/08) for the suggestion, we followed her lead and headed to Walmart for a new supply of goldfish. We're starting with 25 -- a bargain at 28 cents each.
