Nice and tidy - where are all your dead leaves Paul??!!

You may have lots of conifers there Paul, but they are all different shapes, sizes and colours. A lot of thought went into the planting - well done you it's looking so good!

Looking good Paul. We used to have a black net over the pond that stopped most of the leaves going in.

Every few years we would catch the fish put them into the rain barrel and drain the pond to clean out all the leaves as it used to become a sludgy mess. The temperature and water content in the rain barrel was the same as the pond so the fish were happy in there for a day or two, then transfer them back to the pond. We tried to leave the water for a while before putting the fish back in as they don't like change of temperature or water. Having the net helped a great deal to keep the pond cleaner.

That is a great idea Linda - I have thought about in future having 2 ponds - one for nature alone - one for fish - I put mine in the bath at the time - it was mild weather so hopefully the temps were near enough - I believe tap water is as warm at 20 degrees though
