What a difference 24 hours makes..


Not even 24 hours after the pond and garden were completely covered in a dusting of snow, there is none!! The area is covered with different bulbs popping up, and the pond water must be a lot warmer because the fish are swimming about and being more active. I’ve even turned back on my stone waterfall and filtration box and divided and replanted the ponds watercress to help give added filtration! Not even 24 hours after the snow..

The last photo shows the three areas that I replanted the watercress. I plant it in kitchen sponges (unused ones) and then place them in places of fast moving water where they grow at their best (in my experience) if anybody is interested in how I made my small mini filters I will do a separate blog..

The temp went down to 15F last night and my ponds are iced over with the exception of the openings created by the bubbilizers. Looks like you are in good shape.

Thankyou! I've had the air stones on but it's mild again now so I've turned it off

Just got word that my locale is going to get its first snowstorm this Friday into Saturday and it's going back down to 15F tonight. Right now your pond looks like a boiling cauldron compared to mine. All the best to you!
