    81 today after a brutal week of Forest Gump rain. It cleared up enough this weekend to get some work done but hopefully the rain is gone for awhile... Now if the humidity would follow... :wtf:

    Pond and fish are doing wonderful! Can't wait for warmer weather so I can get hubby into pond to take one more side of rocks off the side of the pond. I would just do it but some of those rocks are bigger then I can lift.

    They are easy to move while they are IN the water ... but once you get them above the surface ... yikes, full weight again! Temps here got really chilly again last night, below 50. Brrrr ....

    It's been a while since I've been on here. My pond is doing awesome, fish are healthy and happy. Going to start pulling rocks off the the last side of the pond this weekend, then I will only have the rocks under the the waterfall. That's going to take me a little longer to get motivated to do. :(

    Glad your back. This is my first post in a while. Dont hurt yourself moving rocks. I came home today and something had knocked a big rock into the pond and all the fish were hiding under the water lily leaves.

    Good to hear from you! I have been very busy as well this July so I have not been posting a whole lot. My mother is extra needy these days and then I was very busy in my yard. Now things are slowing down for me at work and home so I should have more time to post!

    Been missing you all! Glad all is well with everyone. Colleen, did you do a post of your yard for the Garden Walk? If so, I missed it. Be careful moving big rocks, MT .... All is well in my habitat in Illinois, too. :)

    I really should have but was so busy but I did manage to post a couple videos from the window of some of the people walking abound pond, and a few pictures on my "Ponds in Canada" thread https://www.gardenpondforum.com/threads/ponds-in-canada.9124/page-111

    Then the Medicine Hat local news had my pond pictured under Twitter, but I never use twitter hardly, just once before, and had trouble finding the page...

    My pump in my pond crashed a week and a half ago :mad:!! Today my new pump was delivered so I installed it and all is good again. At least for now.:)
