If all goes according to plan we'll be doing the 2020 Great Koi Round Up tomorrow....wish us luck ! I too drain down the pond @mrsclem , not completely but quite significantly. If I have trouble with some I'm prepared to transfer the adults to a live stock take and drain it completely, but hoping it does't come to that.

Like the virus oh so tired of the pond covered in snow the trees all bare. Haven't seen a fish in the pond in over a month. Your photos struck me @cas now I'm wishing for the warmer weather. But I may not have a pond to look at. That hits even harder.

What a shame @GBBUDD . You just did more work on your pond. You haven't had enough time to sit back and enjoy it. What state would you move to?

Bummer @GBBUDD ! Come to the Pacific N.W as our weather is pond friendly all year long at least here on the west side. Boy I know you hate our politics here tho and so do I so maybe you should try to go to a state that fits your politics better? What states would that be I wonder? @sissy says her state in Virginia is great on tax savings.

It takes 15 to 30 years for the virus we all knew before covid as New York and California to infect the rural states of the south and mid west. Finding some great potentials just not sure if I want to be over 3 hours to an airport.
@j.w w I have to admitt I do love your state. The wonders are boundless on different vacations I have spent a good 10 weeks out there. I probably know it nature wise better then most who live there. But with my love of Harley the secondary roads that have moss growing on them spells disaster.
Have found a few places in Tennessee, NC area but not sure if I want to deal with the heat.
ANY SUGESTIONS ?

Virginia is not all that tax friendly.i just left there after about 8 months. Though along the westerly border to the blue ridge and Shenandoah Valley are very attractive to me. Love love love that area. And in the mountains less heat so less heat more tax but less then here maybe the ticket.

Too early to do much gardening, but I did get a new path to the pond built. I loved the bridge that my brother-in-law made me years ago, but the posts had started to rot and instead of replacing them I decided to make a stone path instead.

Another Connecticut Yankee here, moved south in 1988. We lived in South Carolina for about 10 years, and it has some lovely areas, fairly conservative, but you'll face the heat, even in the upstate. I'm currently in eastern NC, love the people and the area but the summers are very humid as well as hot. EVERYTHING is air conditioned. If that doesn't appeal to you I'd suggest you try western NC, but stay away from Asheville, Charlotte, and other university/liberal areas like Boone. You'll get some snow there, but not like up north, unless you head for higher altitudes.
