Adventures in Aquaponics

I have had pet betta fish on and off for several years. They’re always blue, they’re always well-loved, and they’ve always lived for at least a couple years (except for one tragic incident that I don’t like to speak of). 227 more words

Thanks for Sharing

I lost another fish today but this one didn’t catch me by surprise. She had been moping around for several days and not moving much. She would not eat any of the food that I put in the pond which was very unusual as she being one of the biggest fish, was always at the head of the food line. 211 more words

Cool, Green and Tranquil Gardens - with a twist - exploring the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden

A garden visit this afternoon but not entirely for the horticulture …

This is, despite the artful additions, a just-tamed and beautiful, cool green, tranquil and quite enchanting garden – the rock and water garden to the former Leith Vale Estate built in the 1920s (Leith Vale was then owned by one Trotter, banker and treasurer of the RHS and friend of EA Bowles) – and rescued from dereliction and unrestrained efforts of Mother Nature by Hannah Peschar and her landscape architect husband some 30 years ago, a garden that had slumbered untouched for decades before. 327 more words
