Didn't plan to be away so long. Where do the days go anyhow, and how will I ever catch up?
Maybe I should begin with the fish wagon. Seems like in my last post, I mentioned waiting for Poppy to get home so we could go meet the Fish Wagon in Spring Hope...
Well we did, and was waiting there when the big truck pulled in and stopped.
Poppy there on the left waiting to pick up our one hundred baby catfish.
A handsome dog was at the wheel! and a cutie in the back seat.
All these little catfish are now swimming in the pond. Well, except for three or four that we lost.
Back in 1996 when the pond was stocked, 50 catfish were included.
Now when we feed them only three or four big catfish show up to eat.
Hopefully, all the little catfish will fit in and grow big and healthy.
it made the adjoining beds in front look awful...
So I have been busy for three days now, digging up all this Liriope that has taken over the front yard, leaving just the variegated you can barely see over on the far right. Also pulled up all the old pine straw and replaced it with pine bark mulch.
By the way, I have gone crazy over Chives! These have been so pretty this summer, but see all the ugly Liriope!
All three beds in front are cleaned out, redone, and pretty. and I am worn out! I will take pictures for next time.
Oh, guess who made a bed in the new mulch...
while Poppy wasn't looking..
Eli says, "I don't care. It felt good".
Guess that's about it for now. Thank you friends, if you've managed to read this far. :)
Thank you new followers. I appreciate your friendship.
