was very surprised to see a water lily flower in the pond a few days ago…

I’d been watching for buds, but hadn’t spotted any… these two lilies had overwintered in the aquarium so I wasn’t sure how they would do, which made it even more thrilling…

I took many, many pictures trying to get just the right one… it is difficult to take one that shows the yellow in the centre of the flower correctly…

eventually, I put down a cushion and laid on it taking pictures and then watching the fish…

the waterfall has been off for a few days and they seem to come out from under the bridge more often…

I must have laid there for half an hour watching to see if I could spot the babies…

so far, I’ve seen two shubunkins (the multi-coloured ones) and at least two goldfish… the goldfish (yellow) are hard to spot as they look black… I tried to get pictures but they hide really well and are also very quick…

but what a fun time watching…
