Good morning! We've had a fairly cool July thanks to rain almost every day.

My water garden has been very neglected this year. I haven't cleaned it out at all.

It seems to have created the perfect environment for new goldfish babies! There are at least 4 (1 gold and 3 black), but they are very camera shy. The fish in the picture is one of the adults.

I hope your July is going great, as well. The kids are I are about to leave for Rhode Island to visit Grandpa and Grandma. I'll be back to 2 weeks with pictures to share!

We've been loving all the rain so far this summer in N Texas - we've barely had to water our lawn! So nice, and it does keep the temps down. I'm sure it won't last but I sure have enjoyed it while it did!

Hope you all have a wonderful time in Rhode Island.

in Germany it´s raining too, but after the hot weeks this is also urgently necessary.

The water garden looks lonely without Daisy in it!

Your water garden is beautiful and looks so peaceful. I would love to sit near it to think or pray or maybe even read a book. Have a good time on your trip and be safe!

The water garden looks amazing to me! After a very cool, wet spring (which has severely delayed cherry harvest)we've been hit with a heat wave. My tomatoes seem to be enjoying it, but other plants not so much.

Goldfish babies?! How cool is that!

Enjoy your vacation.

Just seeing your water garden in pictures makes me feel cooler. In Va we are in the grips of a heat wave and have only last night had good rainfall. Enjoy your trip and have safe travels!

Looks like neglect is a good thing if you have that going on....the pond is beautiful!

Melissa said...

Wow! How serene!

Marie said...

Aren't you lucky! We have had the hottest summer. In fact, it seems like we went from snow to hot and dry. I cannot imagine what our August will be. We did get some rain the other night and cities near by had bad storms.
Thanks for sharing your pictures.
Love,
Marie

We had a very rainy spring but July has been hot and humid with just enough rain to keep everything green! The corn is over 6' tall and tassling out - our roadways feel very 'cozy' with tall green corn on either side! Your water garden is thriving on neglect - it must be so fun to have baby goldfish swimming about! I hope you have a lovely time with your family in Rhode Island!

Your garden is very unique. The garden I know is not like that. I never thought that a water garden is going to be as beautiful like that.

Hi! I just found your blog today and am really enjoying it. I've never made cards, but I'm thinking I will have to start after seeing all of your beautiful tutorials.
