The weather: After spending a few days in 90+ degree, hot, and humid weather, we finally got some rain storms that rolled through and cooled things down. It turned into such a beautiful evening last night that we spent it outside working and playing in the garden.
I made some yummy baked ziti and we sat out under the umbrella and chowed down. With watermelon for dessert!
Under the umbrella. I now have, thanks to Sgt and his auction eyes, two matching 1950's turquoise patio umbrellas. One needs a table for support but the other one as a spike and can be placed into the ground. One is over the patio table and the other one is giving a bit of shade to the fish pond.
The fish pond. When I lived at DeluxeVille, I had three adult fish in my little backyard pond. When I moved at the beginning of June, I brought all my pond stuff with me as we planned on digging a pond here at The Simple Acre. I discovered as I was moving my fish that I had baby fish too. I found five of them as a emptied out the pond! I get baby gold fish every year....because I have whores for goldfish....but only one or two ever survive. When I went back to do some gardening last weekend at the old place, I found 4 more babies swimming in the old pond. Now we have 9 baby goldfish with our 3 adults. I see some serious inbreeding happening in the future! If you live any where near me and have a pond, expect some free goldfish in a few years! I can however, not vouch for their intelligence.
1. rocks are heavy. 2. Sgt is picky about how his rocks are placed. Yup, Sgt has Rock OCD. Who knew??? Seriously, the guy loves building rock walls and apparently there's a method about it that I know, I could never get right. 3. I don't have to do it. Seriously, if someone says, hey, I'll do that....well then please do!
