Today is the first day of SPRING! Yesterday our first Daffodils opened up, which is actually early for Iowa.
Our trees and plants are budding and sprouting leaves. It has been at least 7-8 years since we've had an early Spring so we are excited. Now we just pray we don't get any bad freezing weather. It would kill off the flower buds and leaves.
Our pet Koi are now swimming around the ponds begging for food. Here is one of our large females 'Sugar':
We gave them a few kernals of food. You must start feeding them only little amounts and not every day until the water gets warmer. The water must be staying above 50 degrees before you even start feeding the koi.
Sparky and I have started our Koi Guard Duty now. The Great Blue Heron will be migrating back north now and will try to nab our pretty koi.
Here is Sparky with the Daffodils:
Now check this one out, the wind was blowing very hard and it blew his moustache and beard and flipped his ears up! He looks like a silly rabbit! hehehehehe!
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
