October Cleanup

This week I plan to drain the large pond and give it a good cleaning. To prepare, I have been cutting back the plants and removing planters behind the filter. The plan is to extend the patio behind the filter and use plants in pots for accents. I have to temporarily relocate the Goldfish, Frogs and any other critters currently calling the large pond home. The 150 gallon Rubbermaid cistern that is part of my rain water collection system will serve as their home. I have prepared it with a bunch of Anacharis that has grown like crazy this year. We really had a bumper crop of that wonderful plant this year.
