So we needed to add a few more goldfish on the raised pond by the bottom patio to give it a bit more impact. The resident goldfish there, although very healthy and seemingly amorous enough, don't seem to procreate successfully. More likely any eggs produced are promptly eaten or filtered away...
On our way to a nearby garden centre we took an impromptu diversion towards Wrest Park, an English Heritage property near us.
|An artichoke patch greeted us. Mmmmm, one of my favourite veggies!|
|Nice colour scheme!|
|Okay, we're supposed to take a break from exotica but we couldn't help it!|
|Although most of what they have in it, we grow permanently outside...|
|Neptune and a fish, although we are after those with a slightly more active personality.|
|Fish in the pond, a reminder why went out in the first place. Time to go!|
And then they were released!
Voila! Little red pets, welcome to Alternative Eden!
