Gorgeous pond scene. I love the crocosmia all arching out over the water like that. (Is that what they are?) :-)

What a beautiful pond Skillen, which water lily is it, looks very healthy?

I've got 8 fish (one koi )who is about a foot long 3 shubunkins and 4 goldies. I do see the odd frog but they don't hang about - (felix of course) I think there would be a lot more visitors if it wasn't for Felix! I did notice some very small babies in there last weekend (first time in 5 years)! Hope they survive Sue.

Hi JJ thanks, I have had a lot of trouble over the years trying to grow waterlillies. I've spent a fortune! I put them in the pond and a week later they're dead. This one though has lasted since June and it does look healthy, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it comes back again next year.
As usual i don't know the name but it has still got the label on it! I'll let you know tomorrow.

Hi Jen the lily is called Nymphea (Joey Tomocik) It has a a few flowers but the didnt open probably due to lack of sunlight.

Thanks Skillen, I'll look out for it.I get the same problem with shade,but I've found that the Nymphaea Alba flowers whatever I put it through!

Thanyou Homebird, I must admit I'm really pleased how this area has turned out. Hubby made the pond and I did the planting. It was a bit of beginners luck really, it's my favourite part of the garden.
