Last summer, when we redid the garden in the pond area, one of the things we did was to remove all the grasses which we, and nature, had planted in the upper (bog-like) pond.
I really wanted to do this to make the upper pond,
which doesn't have koi in it, a reflecting pond.
Would you be?
And just to give you an idea of what lives in our pond there is this photo--you'll see why I put it at the bottom of the post:)
