One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

I feel bad not knowing who this is working in the pool, but, hey!, look at that hat and those gloves and the long sleeves and boots???
I guess I could have asked, but I was in a hurry. I do know it's one of Brad's dedicated volunteers skimming junk. I only get glimpses of what goes on behind the scenes to keep the pool beautiful, the fish healthy, and the whole system running smoothly. From those snippets, I know the tolerances are small, it requires constant attentton and tweakng, to avoid that natural tendency towards increasing entropy that can result in disaster. Still, we don't have major disasters and the pool is unfailingly beautiful.
I'm looking forward to a Koi round-up later this month. Sort of.
