My favorite flower is the lotus flower. The symbolism is amazing.something that thrives in a dark muddy murky environment to push toward the surface of the water and bloom with such vivid beautiful color. I want to be more like the lotus.
In the summer, pond water tends to get foggy. I like to drain our small pond about filling back up with fresh water. I use the pond water to water plants.They love the fish water! Dual purpose-clean the pond and feed plants great nutrient!
