So did I! :D I'm thinking they must have been what inspired me to get hubby to take the bottom off a fish candle holder I'd picked up at an op shop somewhere and put a stake on it instead.

It's a fantastic pic, Luzy, and I'm hoping you're planning on showing us what you do with the new ones?!

yes Luzy......I'm also waiting to see what you do with them.
I just can't get over that pic....it really does look like the fish are swimming in a reef, it's a truly amazing photo.

The worst thing is, Bulbinella, we're actually paying for broadband. :roll:

I don't know how you people who are on dial-up all the time can stand it. I'm suffering a severe case of picture withdrawals!

yes, pictures......if they're not reduced or thumbnails.....I don't usually wait for them, just takes soooooooo long for them, so I do often miss a few.

I'd just love to see them, Pam! (Must be time for a petition to get your broadband back)

I've put the new fish in with the leeks to start weathering (oh, okay, to get rid of the dust...). But I will have to get hubby to cut the stands off them so I can put them on stakes, too - so much easier, rather than trying to fit the stands into the garden :lol:

Pics will be in the gallery soon (ish)... (as thumbnails, Bulbinella :roll: )

Daff, I got them five or six years ago. I think the shop was called Nature's World but it closed down about four years ago here. The other fish I have I got off... ebay :roll:
