Beautiful things don’t ask for attention…

Fish do the trimming. Sun provides the energy. Rain replaces evaporation. Nature provides the food input if we are unavailable. System delivers equity for the inhabitants. Sounds like a babbling brook.

Suppose the mission intent is in the journal title @PARAGUAY . Suffered heavy loses over the last year. Figured smashing a massive hole in the sun baked ground in summer heat is a better way of dealing rather than bottling things up. Time to think, time to ponder whilst carving out the ground.

More than anything it’s there everyday for the morning coffee. Even tonight it’s good company whilst enjoying a beer:

Pond in October before the sun did a disappearing act:

Has done alright for itself despite being started up late in the season, three months growing weather in total.

Winding down for the colder season now. Rain brought a minor bought of blanket weed to bloom in October.

Two treatments of this stuff seems to have worked:

Temporarily changes the viewing somewhat though… 😂

Lilies cut back, UV off and gone up to four airstones to even out agitation and flow. Last big water change for the year:

Good thing about dropping the water so low is you can easily count the livestock. All the Shubunkin’s are still accounted for and have grown to 5 inches on average. Fingers crossed they make it through the winter 🤞🏻
 
I used to get blanket weed, but after adding arum “lillies “ (years ago) no longer get it, they can get big though currently over 5’, next year I plan to remove one (leaving one in place) and replace it with some form of reed, as yet undecided

Sounds like a good addition, will definitely give them a go and they have pretty flowers.

Planting was rushed tbh @fredi , will work on the planting properly for next season. Thank you for the tip 🙏🏽

If it’s of any help
You are more than welcome to a plant , as I said I will be removing one next spring
It’s too large to lift (without a crane😂), I will cut it up in situ, with a wood saw, before re growth occurs (done this many times over the years)

That’s very kind @fredi , thank you for the offer but wouldn’t want to put you through any hassle 🙏🏽
