Bob’s Koi Pond

DSCF28 Bob’s urban garden is up and running!  He added a few banana trees, a  palm, and   lots of flowers and vines.   A new crop of  turtles have have moved into the Koi pond, but they are frustratingly camera shy.

Bob kept  Koi fish in the pond all winter-even when there was snow on the ground.  A heater kept them from freezing, but they weren’t very lively.  This spring he added a lot of minnows and for a couple of weeks, they all swam around happily.  But there wasn’t enough oxygen for the big guys, so they are now swimming in the great hereafter.  The little guys have taken over and will be big guys this time next year.

The lotus blossom sprang up  unexpectedly one day.  I got curious about lotus blossoms and found this interesting link. Enjoy the slide show.
