We spent the whole weekend switching out the ponds to Iris Gardens. I put all the water lilies and lotus in the galvanized pond in the backyard. The water lilies and lotus are putting out new leaves. I only hope the bees will let me near to photograph and enjoy the beauty. Not certain if the iris, canna and marginals will take a while to acclimate to soil. Time will tell if we get flowers or have to wait until next year. It’s a wait and see game on the persimmon tree. There were flower buds forming before we took it out of the pot and planted it. Think good thoughts that mother nature and Dale will take over.
