and several dogwoods
Unfortunately, along with the beautiful weather, has come another harbinger of spring, the ever-hungry Blue Heron.
He ate my last blasted koi. So now we have a pond filled with algae, some unknown variety of vine, and little else. That koi was big enough to make a good-size serving of sushi. If it was going to be eaten, it should have been by us!
Damn bird - I hope he chokes.
