Our Pond in the summer time

When we built our house, we put a  pond in front instead of a raised bed flower garden, which was our first intent. The pond has generated a whole new ecology in our front yard, from the dragonflies, to the squirrels, raccoons, and deer to these beautiful water hyacinths. The husband wintered over last year’s water hyacinths in the basement. As he was working on the tub enclosure with grow lights, I stood by and poo poo’d his effort, with the notion that you could buy new plants cheaper than the manhours it took to build the winter sanctuary for the plants. Look how gorgeous the plants look! As usual, he was right!
