There are two very large Koi left from the original 12 Nigel purchased for this upper pond, but they've developed a very keen sense of survival and hide under the bridge whenever they sense anyone (or anything) nearby. These are all babies from the original 12!
These are the "middle sized" Koi. There are babies everywhere, but didn't show up well in the photos because they're so small. There are probably about a hundred of them. They reproduce like rabbits!
Nigel's and my favorite are the pink water lilies! They're amazing, coming out early in the morning, then closing up and going underwater at night!
A bit dirty after a few large Koi were flopping water and algae around this one, but it was still too beautiful to ignore! And they're perennials! These are from last year!
