Who knew that a few clouds could make such a difference. It was so much cooler this morning and I finally was able to get out there and take a few photos.
The Caesalpinia yellow Pride of Barbados is blooming and they are so pretty. The regular ones are blooming as well but I only photographed this one as I thought it was so different.
The bark on the Arbutus Madrone 'Marina' is so captivating. I love how it is red and it peels. I think it is such a neat tree, someone came in the other day and said they had grown up calling it a Strawberry Tree, as the fruit it sets resembles a strawberry. (but does not taste like one.... I tried it....).
I have finally been able to capture the fish. They seem really happy as of late and the lily pads have a really pretty bloom that has opened up.
These two little ones (Huey and Duey) love to come up and say hi. I know they think every time they see me they are going to get fed. Such is not the case. Luey did not make it as I reported earlier in a post but these two guys seem happy as can be.
Cleo has finally warmed up and comes up to the top now. I will admit I had to throw a little food in there to get her to come up, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
Here is a shot of Cleo and Alex. Alex is still realllllllly shy and comes up for a SPLIT second and whoosh is gone again. This was the best shot I could get. They are so much fun. If you have not been to The Austin Aqua-Dome, I highly recommend it. It is a great place for the fish, lily pads, plants for the pond etc.. and they are so helpful. (and patient I might add....) I had a lot of questions as this was my first little fish pond/tank and they could not have been more helpful.
