It is so nice to see the fish again. I noticed yesterday the pollen is starting to collect on the edges of the pond already. Pollen season is kicking in. It gets so thick. Last year the local news had people send in drawings they did on their cars in the pollen. A layer of light green builds up on everything. It is going to be a test for us to see if we can keep the pond clear through the dreaded Richmond Pollen assault of 2008.
