In addition to our lovely yard and garden, my husband and I also have a decent-sized koi pond. Right now, we have two big fish and a number of baby koi. We used to have six big fish but, over the last fall and winter, two died and two disappeared. Say what you want, but the fish have different “personalities” and, while I’m not exactly attached to them, it is sad when they die/disappear. Darcy, who was my favorite, is buried in the garden—NOT the vegetable garden—so he’s giving back in a way.
