How great is it to write a pond and water garden blog yet be able to do wine reviews and it is not out of place, a wine review that is still topical to ponds and water gardens. I recently took part of a wine tasting event, a wine tasting done on a live radio show, with a company that makes mixing ponds and wine easy; two things I love. Well the wine label of Koi Pond Cellars really made this pairing come together nicely. Wine and ponds, how fine!

BUTTERFLY KOI, WATER DRAGONS OF THE POND WORLD

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: May 29th, 2014 | No Comments

butterfly koi

For the koi purist, the kichi, the sleek and flashy butterfly koi may not be their first choice when it comes to their koi collection. For many, the butterfly koi simply would not be an option at all. When you get into the upper echelons of finer koi keeping, the butterfly varieties are barely even recognized as being a fish! Yet, for so many others they would not think of their collection as being complete without some sort of representation from the butterfly variety. My koi collection would fall into that category as well since I can account for 3 butterfly koi in my pond’s population. However; in my pond, I refer to them as dragon koi. I like the name dragon koi better. The long fins on my fish coupled with the swishy manner of swimming they have, actually makes them appear to be much more like little water dragons swimming through my pond than butterflies. But that’s just me, you can call yours what you like but in my pond they are dragon koi all the way!

Watercress

Watercress. What is watercress anyway? Is there such thing as rockcress or maybe landcress? How about outerspace cress? Cress, really?

     Yes, cress, really. There is landcress! There is rockcress! There is NOT outerspacecress, and I am sorry if that disappoints you. Truth is that cress, watercress primarily, played a huge and often times important role in many civilizations of the ancient and not so ancient world. Watercress’s botanical name is Nasturtium. It is an ancient plant utilized around the globe throughout history. And you still are not growing it in your pond? Why not?!
