A Quiet Pool

20110825-055925.jpg

in the garden with goldfish gliding to the surface can be so relaxing. All your cares seem to slip away and you find yourself in a dreamy, creative state of mind where new ideas are born. Our fish are not fed. They fend for themselves. Originally intended to control mosquito larvae, they also feed on algae and whatever other waterborne fare they can find. Oh, we do toss in various caterpillars, etc. found munching on our garden plants. Not feeding them also helps protect them from predators. They seek shelter when anything comes near. We can view them unoticed from the deck above, however. They have a valuable function in the garden. They are not pets.

Wishing you peace and joy in your garden today,
