What is in the pond? (This is gross....)
Ok, even though this is technically a pond thread, I don't dare put it on the "real" forum. rotflol
Yesterday I was gardening..imagine that...and I glanced over at the marginal area that has the "bird bathing" station. I saw this weird brown puffy fungus looking stuff there...kind of reddish brown like that slime mold you find on mulch.
Since I recently mulched, I thought perhaps some spores liked that area and had hatched or something. I went over and was poking it w/ my finger and trying to figure out if I should take it out or what.
So I'm poke poke poking and then I about passed out b/c the most NASTY smell in the world drifted up..........and dare I say FAMILIAR smell????? LOL IT WAS CAT POOP!!!!!!!!! Kitty Boy or some other stray CRAPPED in the marginal area...I'm talking floating puddle o' doodoo and I'm sitting there poking it. haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I about puked...it was SO gross. So then how to get it out w/o it distributing out in the pond (it was floating, people). So I got a tupperware (don't worry, I won't be bringing over meals to share w/ you anytime soon lol) and used the lid to kinda scoop it in there, pushed the lid on and went and sterilized my hands.
Have you ever heard of such a thing????
