because there are mites over the waterlily leaves. Lynettea forgot to look at them for a while and they became covered with more mites. She is trying to kill the mites by pushing the leaves into the water and then making splashings and pushing the mites under the water. This seems very cruel, but we don't want our plants to die. They make good shelter for us.

Oh no! I hope those mites go away!

Lynettea has just been making more splashings. She says it would help if we ate the mites, but they are too gritty in the mouth. We prefer our regular food.

Awww, too bad. Does she have bug spray? They sell it at stores.

Diamond said...

Hi Keisha, Lynettea says insect spray on the pond might make us very sick.

We hope the mites go away and your plants will be okay.

You have been through so much recently, dear friends. We admire your strength and calmness in the face of all the changes.
We wish we knew about plant bugs but we don't so we are of little help. Lots of koi sites In the US have things they say will help. If your mum needs/wants anything, we will be glad to ship it off to her asap.
Love to all.
