the pond tonight… waterfall is not running, not sure why, but my son-in-law is coming tomorrow morning to see if he can figure it out…

bad start to the day… looked outside first thing to see that the waterfall wasn’t running and the water was very low… ran out to turn the hose on… the gazing ball was in a strange place and the bubbler was at an odd angle…

  
and then I spotted the fish carcasses all over the deck and the bridge…

I think a family of raccoons must have come by after the storm last night and had a sushi buffet…

all of the big fish are gone and I could only count about six small ones still swimming…

looked like a crime scene with fish corpses and plants ripped out of the pond…

miserable job to clean it up… had to use a shovel and disposable gloves to pick everything up, and then hose it down… still fish scales left on the deck, even after spraying it twice…

  
tomorrow I will pick them up by hand…

I am usually thrilled with all creatures that wander through the garden… maybe not so much for ones who destroy the natural setting…
