new additions

many many new additions to the menagerie:

IMG_1513 MIL, faced with a population explosion and a need to reduce numbers, scooped into her pond and sent these home with me recently.

After a night in cramped quarters in the goldfish bowl, and a morning waiting for their new home to be prepared, they made themselves comfy. These are Guppies. Not sure what else they are called, but they are little fish, that come in all sorts of colours - pretty orange and blue ones as you can see here.

IMG_1514I did a little recycling, and made use of a pool pump that had recently expired, taking the business bits of it out and using it to hold a water plant, and provide some shelter for the little fishes.

Its quite additive, sitting and peering into the water, watching them swim around.

I am hoping that I haven't however provided a new menu option for birds and kitties around the garden!
