Yesterday I noticed about 20 baby koi swimming around in the lower pond at the store. I was shocked. We had just drained and cleaned that pond about a month ago. But it's very cool because in all the years, 11, we have only ever had two koi mature. So I am pumped about that.

Please visit my live web cam. Within the next couple days, we will reach 2,000,000 views. WOW. I am shocked.

Here it is late September, and it's freaking hot. I hate it. I want to work on the new pond, but between my cold, and the heat, I'll be staying inside for the day. Even Matt is complaining about the heat. Tomorrow it is only supposed to be a high of 70. That will be a refreshing change.
A heron has been scoping out my pond at my house the last couple of nights. My cat alerted me to it two nights ago, it was on my roof. Last night at 1:00 am, the bird was standing beside the pond. Needless to say, he didn't stay there very long.
Don't forget to think about winterizing your water garden.
