Koi in a pond at the Denver Botanic Gardens
While they were working on the Japanese gardens in my previous post, the zoo staff moved the koi to another pond. During the two years they grew and multiplied. Now I'm guessing it would be a formidable task to catch them all and move them. They have stocked the new pond with small fish who will grow into their surroundings. Meanwhile, these lovely specimens come whenever someone steps onto the platform where they are fed each day. I never see Koi without thinking of the Byodo-In Temple, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, with its many colorful Koi which we saw many times during our three years living in Hawaii Kai.
Every Monday we try to do something experiential with our granddaughter Clio. This past Monday we went to watch the koi. Grandpa loved them too.
