About 15 years ago, my son and I dug out two back yard fish ponds with a back hoe, to my wife’s surprise.
This pond was about 12 X eight feet. We stocked it with dime-a-dance aquarium goldfish.
The goldfish grew rapidly.
About ten years ago, the herons at a nearby lake took notice.
I had been anxious, having not seen Billy for eight months. I am superstitious. I believe that Billy protects me. I feel much safer now. I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.
Thanks for reading The Daily Bucket.
Phenology is how we take earth’s pulse.
We discuss what we see in each Bucket.
We value all observations, as we ponder life’s cycles.
Now it’s your turn.
