On Golden Pond


Okay, I admit
that title is wrong on so many levels

First, I was not on the pond
and, secondly, there was nothing golden about it
but writing "Mucking About Beside Weed Infested Pond" just don't have the same gravitas
just saying...

Today, I took upon myself the back-breaking task of clearing the pond
It was full of bladderwort, hydrilla, some over- grown grasses... you name it, we probably got it
According to my gardener, a pond without weed is a puddle
oh, bless...
he can count on his lucky star I was not in my usual homicidal mood

Anyshmellyways...
the weather was simply fabulous
and I managed to clear what little bit that I could
Probably need to hire some muscles to clear the bits in the middle of the pond
me hands are simply not long enough!








The pond.
We haven't come up with a name for it.
Any suggestion??

    1. Salam Norlyda,
      Banyak lagi yang kena buat. The previous owner had left it in such a bad state, it's full of weeds.
      Kalau nak tengok makeover, kena tunggu sat na :)

    1. Hi Cilantro,
      it'll probably be a long wait... the pond was left in such a state it will take some massive clearing up before I could do anything :)
