Lynettea keeps telling us she is too busy busy and we hardly see her. Even when she throws us food it is whisked over the pond and she is off and away. We are afraid she will forget about us.
It was very hot again and we had the blue umbrella roof up over The Pond. It was so hot that the water level went down a bit and some of our new pond plants got a bit dried out at the top and withered. Now it is cooler again, 27 C today.
Lynettea thought we had eaten all our fast growing little plants on the top of the pond, but they just stopped growing and then passed away into little balls of nothing.
We did eat a few of them once we got used to the taste.
They were crisp but a little bit furry in the mouth.
Lynettea preserved a small group of the plants in a small pot, so they can float there and multiply while being protected from us. We thought that was funny, as we hadn't eaten the others. She also preserved some of the duckweed plants in another little pot for us. Both of these little 'endangered pond plant species pots' rest on one of our slate shelves, so there is some pond water in them.
Life goes on as we await the arrival of the new kitty. WE have no further news of it and just hope it is not being nurtured and trained to be a savage fish predator. We are keeping ourselves fit and prepared by rushing around the pond and playing with one another. Lynettea says we have achieved a lot more confidence now Dawn has left the Pond. We have been forced to grow up in a hurry. Streak is an older fish, but previously was a quiet fish.
We will try to get more photos put on the computer soon.
