My pond looks...... full. We've had three straight days of rain, totaling over 7.5" (2.5 Tues., 3.5 Wed., 1.5 Thurs) But the sun came blazing out for most of the day today and everyone was loving it - fish, frogs, lizards, dogs, ME! lol

Your pictures are always fantastic. That WAS some rain spell you had. We got a lot (charlottesville, va ) but not as much as you. I can’t believe how clear your water is after so much rain. Mine would have been a cloudy mess. Love your girl soaking up the rays..mine are sun seekers too:)

utoh, our rookery is about 10 miles west of us, but they fly over every day. I love watching the little ones. Yep hard on a pond.

Thanks! I was waiting for a nice, soaking rain to help clear the water from all the Spring muck (toad spawn) and tannin (tree pollen) Now I just have to deal with seriously low kh because of all the rain. Sigh... It's always something (but also always fun!)

Love that big fish at the bottom of your pic looks to be a real nice fish.
that fish is Bert and had him since 2004 ,he is the bad fish of the group he likes to come up and spit water at you .Not sure why he does it but he started doing it about a year ago .I thought it was just a mistake but he does it every time I am doing something with the pumps or something close to him .

Bert had me at hello being the bad fish that is until you said he spit at you now while i condemn the act i found it humorous as well.

I know now to watch for the clues bert gives me before he spits .He will swim up whip his tail and come out of the water a little and then he spits .My sister and hubby did not believe me friday when they came over until Bert proved himself to be a spitter .I thought it was funny when Jackie yelled at him .I have no clue why he started doing it but he is the only one that does it and I hope he does not teach his manners to the other fish .The first time he swam up to her she gave him a little food from her hand and the third time no food and he spit at her .But her hubby offered him food from his hand and he still spit at him .

Pretty Lily, addy! You have to be 3-4 weeks ahead of us up here.

Pics from today. Year 2 and still have some more strategic stone placement to go. I keep hunting for free ones but anything of decent size is too heavy to dead lift into the bed of the pickup. Wish I had a trailer and 1 ton pickup so I could drive my tractor to the free stones about 30 mins from me. The guy is saying take all you need, please!
