at my current rental house there’s a small pond, and at the beginning of the year, at the urging of a pond dude who helped with a cleaning, i bought a few goldfish from the pet store and plopped them in. he informed me that they wouldn’t need any care really, and that they’d actually keep the pond cleaner.
all true, plus, they’ve quadrupled in size and now I love each one uniquely and with my whole heart. problem is, I’m moving, and there’s nowhere outdoors for these fish pets of mine to live.
in steps an instagram message from ann howell bullard, alerting me to vincent wolf’s CHIC INDOOR FISH POND (check out the whole home tour!). he just brought some lotus flowers from amsterdam, added them to a pot from thailand, then threw in guppies.
and there you have it – i’m going to become a water garden person. indoor ponding is how i’ll spend my days. i need to find a vessel – big, I think, because there are ideally 10 goldfish i’d like to bring with me, plus a few of the lotus plants from the pond, and maybe some new additions, like a tall something, or a pink flower type moment.
this seems fairly not difficult, but does any one have experience with this? i need to know all the things as i embark on this new indoor aquatic life. here are a few inspiration images, and some items i’ve been browsing to get started on this project. don’t tell me you’re not excited!
