What a wonderful concert and light show I had last night! The storm was mostly south of my place so I got to watch the lightning and hear the thunder from my front porch. A few drops of rain fell but that's all. When I went to bed the show was still going on. Have to love it!
Must go down to the pond this morning to check the overflow pipe. I've been checking the pond level from my kitchen window and believe that it is higher than it should be soooooo....the boot will have to come off for that venture. I don't want to get it wet and muddy. I also want to see how much the water lilies have expanded regardless of the fact that I have hit them twice with lily killer. I think they liked it! Must find a way to get rid of them before they choke the pond. If you have any viable ideas, please let me know.
I did have this idea. Inflate an air mattress, fill the backpack with lily killer and float out to the center of the pond where most of the lilies are. It's almost impossible to get any killer on those 'cause the sprayer isn't that powerful. Of course the most likely thing to happen is that whoever is on that air mattress would probably tip it trying to prime the backpack and would drown. Guess I can scratch that idea.

Have a great day!
