We have a good display of water lillies this year, and they have produced in abundance all summer. Our pond cleaning crew fertilize them each spring, and they also transplanted some of the pots this year. They did a good job!
The black-eyed susans are a wonderful perennial. They survive winters well and produce a reliable show each year. This group has been around for more than ten years.
We watered the cana lillies often this dry summer and are rewarded with these spectacular blooms. They will produce until we have a hard frost. It's hard to imagine anything with equal brilliance!!
The German statice are almost full. They dry well, and if we remember to pick them at peak, they will add much to winter floral arrangements.
