TGIF! I'm sitting here writing my post and watching it rain. We need the rain and as the saying goes "April showers bring May flowers" and I'm so ready for that. The DIY Guy has been doing some work outside getting the flower beds ready and some of our perennials have been popping up but I have some sad news.... For the last several years (I can't remember how long) we've had 10 goldfish in our pond. We winter them over in the house in a 50 gallon aquarium and they have grown to be about 8-9" long. This year after we put them outside, the pond had a high ammonium spike and they all died. John is really careful with acclimating them back outside and watching for that but it just happened.... darn. Instead we'll be filling the pond with water plants which will be less maintenance in the long run!
