The cattails are doing well, the Anacharis is picking up, and the hayacinth put out another flower this week. The grass is coming up well around the pond, and my 6 sarassa comets have gotten a wee bit larger and seem to like the pond.

Since our pond will be in the Southern sun all day, I decided to build a sun block. This is my progress so far. I will stain it to match the pond and cover it with sun shade cloth.

This sun block is removable (it just sits on the pond frame) and will be covered with shade cloth for the hotter months.
