The first daffodils opened today! The garlic has poked through and is looking nice and sturdy. Seed potatoes are coming in tomorrow.
I lost all the fish in the pond this winter. Talking to the girl at the pet store, I found out that many pond owners here lost their fish. The winter was just too cold for too long. I’ll be introducing a few fish at a time into the pond for the next month. These are feeder fish. People buy them to feed other pets. They cost a dime each. I feel sorry for the fish that froze over the winter but living for 8 years in my pond was a better fate than what they may have met as turtle food.
