That’s not too shabby then. And it only took a quarter of an hour to get right. Well, that would have to depend on the size of your garden pond as well as what kind of shape it’s been in, because if it has been in a state of grime and decline for a lot longer than it should have been allowed, then of course, a little more work, some extra effort, and of course, more time, and not to mention, patience would be required.
But not to worry. It is all to the good. It can be shipshape in no time; well, a little more time, but there you go, all it takes for pond aerators and fountains to start looking as good as the day it was born. It will be like starting all over again. It will be like the first flutters of spring, only this time it will be for real. You’ll see, even the birds will start coming back again. But these delightful creatures, well, you’ve still got to watch them.
The urban homer pigeons have become so plentiful these days. They look so clumsy when they totter on the ground greedily scavenging for food, every last morsel they can get their beaks into. But when they’re up in the sky, they look so majestic don’t they. If birds could only help take care of your garden. And they can. It’s just about getting the right species to make it their home. And keeping the critters out.
Plenty of them in the pond if you turn your back on it for too long. Plenty of weeds too. Not so easy to get rid of once they’re allowed to plant their roots for what they thought would be for good.
