Pondering The Hours Away

Forgive me for bragging, but TM is really quite talented in so many ways. He's one of those people who can do anything he turns his hand to. And so it was, that I discovered him making a pond at the back of our house. The pond is now complete and we now also have goldfish, much to Elise's delight. TM would have preffered Koi Carp, but they are apparently illegal in Victoria. Oh well, one day perhaps.
Elise and TM now enjoy "yachting" adventures on their pond, as the fish scramble for cover under the rocks and this little 'shrine'. Made from any recyclable materials that they can find, the boats enjoy hours of travel on the calm waters of our pond.
The other thing Elise enjoys is harvesting the produce that we occassionally manage to successfuly produce. This would have to be our biggest radish yet. Now that Spring is here, we are expecting more sunflowers and (fingers crossed) watermelon in Summer.
