finally everything has established itself in the new pond. Water lilies and one stunning water lily.
over Easter on Euboea these giant moths metamorphosed and sat drying their wings in the sun. This one hasn’t extended its antennas yet the next…
has full reception.
when renovating our bathroom we finally managed to take out that silly Jacuzzi tub, transport it down to the terrace and replace the old flowerpot pond there. All it needed now was a new surround covering the weird shape of it. Marine plywood painted with 2K boat paint, Lino print for that baroque feel, and two waterproof solar LEDs found on sale.
the skirt is marine ply on the straight bit and Styrofoam ceiling trim for the curved part.
now all I have to do is wait for the water lillies to come up and the iris to grow back to their previous size. (and maybe paint that water spout)
fixing the bumper on my Libero in front of our house, this was sitting in the middle of the road. Underweight for a first year baby at the beginning of winter we took it in to join Gustaf and hopefully gain some weight soon. My mother suggested to name him Xaver, good name for a tortoise I think.
