Happy Independence Day for all my US friends! Hope it was a good day for you all and everyone stayed out of trouble

We had a great cookout at my grandfather's as we do every year and have been doing since I was a little kid and even before (so that's at least 22 years!), cookin' up the hamburgers, drinking cold sodas, enjoying friendship and family, and lighting off fireworks!

Here are a couple pictures I took for your enjoyment!

My little brother, did some editing...obviously. I wish I didn't do as much, I can always redo it.


One of the old Donkey's on the farm


Beautiful Tiger Lily that I had trouble keeping steady for


Flags that we fly each year



Fireworks!






And then we had fun with the sparklers! I did these all without a tripod so if it seems a little shaky to you, that's why lol


Mom spelled out "mom" lol


Little bro did his name


Some more fun


We tried for "2015" lol, almost worked!


Then little bro had the fire torch and we tried that. Learned that you have to glow slower to get the same amount of light from it as the Sparklers, this is what happens when you go too fast


And then just dancing around with the flashlights on the cellphones ^_^


Good night all and hope your night is safe!

Oh yeah, forgot I had pics on my phone from Saturday as well.

All ready for the hayride!


Funny sign, we call this "Rt. 139" since we live off R. 138 lol, not real but we have fun on the farm!


Beautiful sun through the forest




Pond on my Grandpa's farm



Can you see the Canadian Geese? They nest here every year





Tiger, the farm kitty! He's about 10-12 years old roughly. He was dropped off near the farm and we adopted him, he is the most lovable kitty every!


Tiger on my Mom



Lovely clouds over the shed


And onto fishy pictures

I love this fish ^_^










Paradise



I can never get Velvet without his mouth shut lol



His son O

I forgot some pics!

I have an Ember Tetra who has internal bleeding, he seems okay though...still alive and eating fine, just...bleeding...


Koi-Girl went off to her forever home and so the 2.5 was open. Linda had a complication with ordering new fish and accidentally won a fish that she bid on before she found the White EE she'd been looking for forever. Soooo I'm getting him ^_^

So I dirted the 2.5 and set it up, just some plants thrown in.
I put it next to my Gecko tank since it was easiest to do

I love your tank setup (all of them) and your fish. You know a lot and are always posting helpful responses everywhere.

So, are yellow bettas harder to find? Just curious. He looks like he's brightening up from your first photos of him.

Aww thank you so much!

It depends on the area, some people have looooots of yellows, they just aren't as common in my area. We have lots of whites, reds, and blues.

I'm glad you went back and got your newest (at home) yellow betta boy, really like the irid/light blue touches in his fins ^^ Russel told me you took the grizzle off her hands for her. Amusing how the white EE (which she really wanted) only popped up after buying and bidding on 2 other fish (que head desk moment).

Also aaaaw I miss my barn cats..use to take care of a bunch of 'partial feral' kitties.. I think my highest count was 33 (they bred and inbred too much >.<)

Have you harvested any good aquatic plants from the pond?

As always, your pictures are lovely. How do you recommend replanting the dwarf water lily bits once they pop off the bulb? i tried planting just the roots and not the little "nut" things, but they're super fragile!

I was very confused for a few minutes as I stared at this lol! I thought it was my Tiger Lily in my 10 gallon and not the pretty flower haha! I had to look back up to the photos to see what the heck I was talking about XD

Even though I did have a little...(we mixed Ginger Ale and Pineapple Vodka, mhmm!! yum yum), I was leaning over a fence and trying not to trip in the poison ivy. Suppose I could have given you all context as well haha!!

Thank you!

I just planted the roots in, but tried to keep most of the plantlet above the sand like you'd do for a Sword as well, just the roots and no more. That generally works well for me, I do that with the Water Sprite now and I've finally be able to grow it planted!! I think I was just burying it too deeply before was all.
