Morgan, the queen of Craigslist, bought a 29-gallon aquarium and all of the periphery for $25. The tank gives a new home to her fish, Hamburger Bun and Starvin' Marvin, and also gave Morgan an excuse to go and buy two new fish, Twinkie and Ho-Ho.
Hamburger Bun really likes his new digs.
Starvin' Marvin, left, is not too sure about Twinkie, but I think they will all learn to get along in their new home.
We also visited a nursery east of Goshen where we found some Peony and planted them in the new heart-shaped flower bed that I made.
The snakes seem to have moved on, thankfully, but I did find two toads hanging out.
And then I worked on weeding the Vinca bed and cutting down the unwanted eastern red cedar and hackberry trees. We are thinking a dogwood or two would look good in this bed, in the center of the photo above.
It's starting to look good and with a little compost it should perk right up by spring.
