Pond life

I’ve added new plants to the pond and they are doing famously. A water lily and Arum lily have opened for the first time today and a yellow iris popped out yesterday. All the goldfish are alive and I’m beginning to be able to identify them individually, although I can’t remember if there are ten or eleven. The majority whizz around at feeding time, with Lucille and Big Red and the egg-carrying orange one coming out eventually. The pump is working fine and the plants are all beginning to grow well in the warm sun.
