Pond Cleaning Day

Today was a day we both look forward to and dread. It is so nice after we are done but it is so much hard work to do. Cleaning out the pond usually takes all 4 of us about 4 hours to do. Today was no exception.

Every year we are surprised by what we find. This year we found a second bullfrog that we had no idea was living in there. As usual, the plants had taken over and needed to be cut back. The fish did well being moved to a temporary home (A big garbage can) but are happy to have their home clean.
The day was pretty rough on me. We have some heavy rocks that cover our water fall box. I was standing on top of the waterfall moving the rocks so I could clean the filter pads and I slipped and fell into a rose bush. That kind of hurt and I broke the bush.


When it was all done, I was pretty tired and dirty. At least we can enjoy it until next March.

Sorry to hear about the rose bush ;-) And I used to hate cleaning the 10 gallon fish tank - WOW! Nice pond!

Now, that's funny, I don't care who you are. I wonder if barb is related to Oksana.
