Spring Flowers and Fish Pond Surprise
When Eaven was here last summer, he caught several fish in the pond or the river and put them into the fish pond. We never saw them after the fall so when I clean out the fish pond to prepare it for some goldfish that neighbor Ed gave me, I found 4 good size Blue Gill that I tranferred to the washtub while I replaced the water.
Glad the goldfish will have some company.
A couple of years ago Eddie and Trudi gave me about a dozen Japanese Maple seedlings from their yard and I have cultivated them in this strip. Most did very well and we are digging some up and passing them around.
This is the first year the Wisteria has bloomed. The Snowball bush Teresa gave me from Balsam Grove is just budding on the left and Dogwoods are blooming in the back.
