It is just after the summer solstice and the sun is at its furthest point south, lighting up our guardian dragon as it sinks to the horizon.
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.
The food bearer took some of our water and gave it to the plants. It will nourish them, she told us
Then The Hose made a splashing torrent for us, filling up The Pond to its former level.
Thank you, noble Hose. We come up to thank Hose and stare at the food bearer. The lazy cat is still in bed. Then he comes outside. We watch as he attracts the attention of the human. But we are more beautiful.
We are enjoying swimming in the sunshine
