Stock tank prep

Disclaimer: This post is mainly for my own records. I never can remember what I do for winter prepping our stock tank. I know I lower most of the plants to the bottom. But this time, I also cut them back (hence the pile of cut foliage at the bottom of the photo above)–the lemon bacopa, parrotfeather and horsetail rush. I set the rush midway down in the pond on a cement block. 

My poor dwarf waterlily is struggling to survive. Something kept digging into it during the summer. Likely those darn leopard frogs. Sigh....I'm getting to be outnumbered. Between them, the fire ants that keep moving into my potted plants and the deer that have figured out how to jump our backyard fence, I think I'm doomed.
