Water Gardens.

Last week my neighbor Nita introduced me to her friend Nancy who is a water garden expert. At her gorgeous property she taught me all she could about tending to water lilies and koi fish, fertilizing submerged plants, de-chlorinating water and creating a healthy ecosystem for plants, fish, amphibians and bugs.
I took new knowledge, vessels, plants and fish home and set it all up.
These gardens bring such happiness, joy and calm to our backyard. The Littles and I call these our "Zen Gardens". Interesting note: We have ten goldfish and five koi, we feed them nothing. All the nutrients they need are in the plants and bugs (like mosquito larve) at the water's surface.
