I hope the work goes well, sadly the weather forecast does not look too promising for the next few days but I hope that you can fit it all in during dry periods.

Do post a picture once it's all finished and those beautiful fish are swimmining freely again.


Not coy, but the only fish emoticon that I can find....
When we began

We had koi in a small pond

We knew nothing about water quality

And sadly they died

So we went on to bigger and better

Filters, UV , air stones , deep pond and pumps that pumped the water back to the filters

And the fish grew large and thrived

And 30 years later the pond leaks

And now we are re waterproofing it at considerable expense

But those fish are alive so itís up to us to protect them

Just as Shadow is ours to protect , cherish and love

And Iíve increased his protein , heís eating well

There is life in the old dog yet

He will live to bite again , well just to threaten to bite
