My Pond Lily


I don't know if this is going to work but I am trying to attach a picture of my pond lily that has flowered. You all seem to be so adept at the photo thing that I thought I would hunt and peck and see if it worked. Wish me luck!

Thought I might pass on a bit of "savings" advice. When we had our pond, we bought fish from a little bit of everywhere. The best bargains we found were by going to a man that sold bait he seined from a small tank. He had koi and goldfish, and we could buy a large one from him for maybe $3 that would have sold for $15 or more dollars at a petshop or "fish" store. They were much more hardy as well.
I don't know how many of you have anything like that in your area, but it would be worth a look.

Beautiful flower gardeningmom. I need to get some pics of mine and post them. I love them. I get so excited when I see a new bloom coming to the top of the water. I have 2 water lilies and one of them is huge. Probably covers a third of our biggest pond. The other one I had in a smaller pond. It wasnt getting as much sun and the water wasnt as deep. This year I moved it hoping for better results. Plus I bought a new one. Not one already growing. One of those in the package. But it wont flower until next year. They want too much for those already growing. An arm and a leg will get one of those for you. I bought this one for 3.99 and next year it should flower. I would rather save the money and wait for it to bloom. Keep those pics coming!!! I just love seeing everyones pics on here.
