  •  Oh, I'm quite proud (12+ / 0-)

    of creating heron-friendly habitat. But its a tough bird-eat-fish world out there.

     Since Anne Dillard's wonderful "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" assured me that a mommy goldfish has 500 young a year (but eats most of them), I'm confident there are still plenty of fish lurking at pond bottom.

    I've  transplanted some of those yellow irises, I think that's what was called ditch irises.  I love the "pseudo" portion of their former name. Psuedo or not, they have pretty flowers.  I've gotten a few of the purple ones too.

    I had them in pots in the pond on shelves in a foot of water, but critters knocked them off, so they're now at pond bottom.  We'll see how they do in three feet of water.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
