Great shot! I love those water lilies. So unusual how they turn up at the edge to form a saucer.

Beautiful, Kerry! *sigh* makes me miss the water lily ponds on Presque Isle. And how wonderful that you can grow the Alligator flag in containers! Oooo! You’ve added to my dream garden plans!

What a beautiful plant, the leaves look like boats floating on the pond. A neat idea for a container :) !

Absolutely Stunning! My son just built a small pond with a rock wall waterfall. He’s stocked it with fish and succulents plants in crevices of the rocks but I’d to see these floating on the surface of the water.

Those are amazing — would love to create that for all the water frogs around here to sit on. Thank You!
