Five little fishies

swimming in a pond, 

actually a large old zinc bath tucked away in a leafy corner of the garden.

Caterpillars abseil towards them, dragonflies hover above, but their most favourite visitor is the art teacher- a very generous feeder.

See them wag their little fins in excitement, jostling for space in front of him.

He waits patiently for the slow one, always swimming excitedly in the wrong direction,

spreads the food evenly, so the greedy one can't eat it all.

What a happy little world to sit and observe.


  1. Oooh. I love the fish!

    1. Rosie- I can't tell you how special they have become, each their own little personality!
      We've expanded to a 2nd zinc bath and I got 3 small khoi looking gold fish, completely different, they dart fast and furiously- we're having fun with the fishies- I'd definitely recommend a little pond in your lovely garden :) x
