We have to swim out of the way as the cat tries to drink from our water. We expect that he won’t drink very much, so that won’t deplete our supply. The poor thing must be thirsty. We hope the human is looking after him properly. His coat looks full and bushy and he seems lively enough.
A new video in the morning. The Food Bearer says it shows off our bright colours. She says it looks as if we are in an opera. We like that. Our lives alternate between moment of high drama and peaceful contemplation.
We have two new ribbon grass plants and a fringe lily that will help aerate the pond water.
Here we are relaxing.
It is a beautiful sunny day and we are enjoying swimming in our home, The Pond.
It is spring. Blossoms are falling on the pond from the flowering trees nearby. Our human provider made a video of the bees buzzing in the crabapple tree near our pond.
The neighbour at the back of our place has cut down his high hedge, so much more light is now falling on the pond. The water is sparkling. We are pleased and hope our plants grow better, but worried that it might be hotter in summer than we appreciate.
Here is a view of the whole pond with us soon after our return. Our waterlily is in the pot.
