Garden journal entry


May 19, 2017. Amazingly quickly, those tadpoles have grown up to become minuscule toads. Or are they frogs after all? The little ones jump better than toads do, but then they have much less weight to send into motion. Of course only a small fraction of the tadpoles have grown to this state. For the most part, we have no idea what happened to the rest. A few got stuck on top of lilypads and perished when their pad-puddles evaporated. Perhaps the fish ate a few? I never witnessed any hunting behavior, but they are cold-blooded sneaky creatures! On the topic of fish – our beloved Suki did not survive. One day I found her at the bottom of the pond, apparently just recently deceased, cause of death unknown. She's fertilizing a sago palm now. We may try a small koi again some day, but for now we're keeping a close eye on our goldfish (whose number has come down by only one, and who have grown quite a bit in the past month).
