what a joy

 Although we can’t complain about the winter we had this year mother nature is playing tricks on us again. Signs of spring and warm weather and now snow tomorrow??  What gives? While walking through the garden you can see signs of spring trying to emerge.   The fish in the pond will venture towards the water […]

Fall is here

Its officially fall now and we need to begin preparing our pond for the winter and hopefully a cleaner pond for spring.  I’ve listed a few maintenance tips to guide you through preparing your pond for the winter.  I still have a few flowers appearing in my pond but I think they are almost through […]

What’s Up??

This frog is getting brave…..I can get close to him and it doesn’t seem to matter.  That is if I talk before I get to him so it doesn’t frighten him.  He likes to hid behind my Rain Lily.  Maybe he just likes his picture taken hehe. I sure do alot of that.  Now there […]

another year

    Well the holidays are over, the tree is down and all the holiday christmas decorations are put away.  I could probably leave my christmas tree up for months as I always miss it once its put away.  Its hard to imagine the room is exactly like it was a month ago because it […]

Almost Any Color….

There are iris of almost any color one would want…..of course I want to plant them all around the pond.  Although they only bloom once during the season I anxiously await their blooms.  The Colorific is exactly like its name…blending of colors and quite unique.  This plant only had about three flowers on it this […]

Blue Heron Decoy

Those annoying predators…..the one we dislike the most when we have fish swimming about.  Some of our customers have had their ponds depleted of fish because of the blue heron!  They are beautiful birds but please stay away from our ponds.  You’d think they’d go for the larger ponds with more fish. Blue Herons are […]

Muck Vac

A Dragonfly Aquatics Best Seller! The Muck Vac does not cause turbulence in the pond because all the muck, dirt and fish waste are vacuumed out of the pond into your yard or garden. If you place the out-take hose in a flower bed, it is great fertilizer for your surrounding flower beds around the […]

SNOW SNOW SNOW……..

Where is my pond and the fish?   They are in complete darkness probably wondering what happened overnight since yesterday even some of the ice had melted away and I could see the fish. We just were blessed with 8 inches of snow overnight but who can complain when the East got so much more snow than […]

Winter…..

I almost can visualize the thawing of the ice…..even if its only 12 degrees this morning.  Today a heat wave, yesterday morning it was only 3 degrees.  But its February now so we can all start thinking about spring.  When the pond is frozen I always wonder what those little fish are doing under there.  There have […]

Leaves are Beginning to Show Some Color

Some of you further north of us, are already getting some chilly nights.  The leaves on your trees are already showing the colors of fall. Here, in Ohio things are just beginning to change. In the past week, I’ve noticed a few splotches of color. Before the leaves begin to fall, cover your pond with […]
