Wednesday Random Photos

One of my co-workers asked why Chinese restaurants have fish aquarium, does it bring good luck?  If that’s the case, we must be the luckiest people around.  My sister’s fishpond pump recently died and she has decided to give her fish away.  Bo went and got some today, and here is one that he left in the 55 gallon tank with the Jack Dempsey Fry. The first batch Fry are 7 month old now and they seem to get along with these new butterfly koi long tail Comets. Her fish look fat because my dad over feed them and this one needs to go on a diet.

Here are 2 more 7 month old Jack Dempsey Fry.

The mother Jack Dempsey and her 3 month old Fry are in the 30 gallon tank. If we were to count, I think we might have close to 1,000 Jack Dempsey Fry.

I won’t be eating fish for a while.  This is Thai Ladna from a new Thai Restaurant that’s owned by a Lao family.  The food is pretty good and they are not stingy with their chicken.

And updating on my seedling, the pickle cucumber plants look pretty good.

As for the cherry tomatoes, I think Lee dropped too many seeds and most came up. I didn’t pull them out fast enough. The ones that I left are very thin, they don’t look too good to me.

The beets in the garden came up also and a good thing that we have been getting a few good showers in the last week or so.

The Blue holly flowers are in bloom.  This made me think of a coffee plant, but the floral scent doesn’t smell as good as the coffee flower.

The bees are buzzing and doing their thing.

Bo once mentioned that if his Zoysia grass came up, he would roll on it for us to see.  I see that Max has beat him to it.

I almost cried when I saw this, but I couldn’t say anything to Lee. My poor flowers.

It is a beautiful flowers carpet in my front yard.
