I did some work on my pond this weekend. I divided some plants and repotted some others. They’re all set to grow nice and big now. And I think I’ve solved a problem that’s been bothering me: the sides of my pond liner have been visible when the water level drops. During the summer, evaporation would cause the liner to be exposed almost all the time. Normally, a person digs a little ledge and makes the edge of the pond two stacks of stones high. I didn’t have the foresight to do that. Noticing that some of the moss on my coping stones has come to life, I decided to buy sheet moss and use it to hide the exposed liner. It looks really good. And now I’m wondering if it will live. Live, moss, live!
I also got my first pond fish. Yay! I got comet goldfish, because they’re really tough. I decided on one solid orange, one solid white, two mostly orange, and two mostly white.
Don’t they look like swimming jewels? That’s what all the pond books say.
