No I haven’t gone into hibernation but with this weather I wish I could. My pond looks great with all the snow around it. I gave into Jemma my grandaughter’s constant requests for fish and we went to our local pet shop, Jemma picked 3 goldfish and 3 shubunkins. We put them in 3 weeks ago and they all seem to be doing well, they have all survived up to now.
I’ve decide to leave the waterfall as it is for now and will wait until the spring before deciding whether to build rocks around it or go for just plants. Because of the lack of space and the fact that the little space I had is now full with the pond I might go for plants rather than rocks to add some colour. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You might be able to see that I’ve left my pump and filter running, I know some people take them out over winter and some leave them running. I’ve decided to leave them running, time will tell if I’ve made the right choice or not.
I couldn’t resist a photo of Suki my cat, she loves the snow and I have a job getting her in once she goes outside.
