Sad Day-Turtle Loss

Well a sad day at the pond today. Seems I lost my little painter turtle to the Turtle Gods. He wasnt looking to good the last few days, I couldnt get him to eat anything, he was still sunning himself daily so I wasnt too worried. Well I guess I should have been, since this morning I found him floating in the pond dead. :-(
Well I still got 3 turtles left, all the frogs that hatched from tadpoles are now also gone, not sure if they met their maker or just took off looking for a new home. But I havent seen any in over a week or two! Well I will always have my pond pictures to remember them! lol
Seriously though, nothing worse then the loss of a pet, even a turtle, makes you bummed. Just wish I knew what the cause was! Maybe it was just sruvival of the fitest taking place on a mini scale in my own mini-ecosystem! Or maybe the turtle was never really healthy from when I got him at PETCO-someplace I hate! Happy Ponding Everyone!

Lotus Flower

Here is a shot I got early this morning, its so hard to get shots of the Lotus Flowers, since they only are open for such a short period of time. but cant get much better then this shot. Absolutely gorgeous, the lush colors of these flowers are so exotic. I love these and the water lilies the most for theor pure beauty! Still waiting for some of the water hyacinth to flower, it had been doing pretty poor all summer, but I have a few spots that are doing great, mostly the in my homemade biofalls, but a bunch look ready to bloom! :-)
Happy Labor Day Weekend, I for one know Ill be sitting by the pond with a nice cold one tomorrow instead of sitting at work!
