Found a brief bit of sunshine to pose my flower this week.

We moved our pond fish into their winter home in the basement yesterday. Trying to get ready for our annual trip to the Okanagan  Valley next week.

Last year we had warm weather when we left but it got so cold the pond froze and we thought we had lost all our fish. Miraculously most of them survived, despite showing no signs of life. Better safe than sorry this year.

Wonderful flower! And indeed: better save than sorrow: how did you catch your fish. I tried to catch my goldfish once, but we ended up getting all the water out, before we could catch them... Have a nice trip!
