The Professor and I both enjoy gardening; we not only grow vegetables and have several pots of herbs, tomatoes, and a variety of lettuces and kale, we also have fruit trees, a small strawberry patch and raspberry bushes.
But one of our favorite spaces in the yard is our pond area . . .
The koi seem to like it too . . . they have grown from little bitty 3-inch .79 cent/fish from PetSmart into these beauties . . .
Last year, they were so happy, the orange koi and the black and orange koi had babies; So The Professor scooped up the babies and took them down to the neighbor’s pond. He thought he had gotten them all but this year we discovered one baby had escaped so now there are three koi in the pond.
This is the third or fourth frog to take up residence and we have no idea where they come from or how they find us but every year one shows up.
Our pond is a beautiful, captivating place that gives us a reason to stop and just be . . .
Where is your favorite place to just be?
