It’s amazing when you stop and think about it. How much your pond goes through. And your fish too. They have to deal with the hottest of summer extremes and every now and then, the coldest of bitter winters. It’s the second one I want to talk about today. Ice is not your friend, unless […]
I came across this article and video recently and wanted to share it with you all here. Ultimately it’s a happy story, of George the Goldfish. George is about 10 years old and is owned by a lady in Australia who became rather attached to her fish. Many of us can attest that she’s not […]
