Solitary lily flower

Our little fish pond…our one lonely lily! This lily will be removed and we’ll plant another in the pond. The water goes underneath the deck bridge so the fish can hide easily.

It all looks very tranquil, Kate. Is the lily too big?

Thanks Ange, that’s kind. It’s outgrown it’s pot in the pond and there’s been fewer pads this year.

A job here in the early spring...our lily almost covers the entire water surface.

When we had a pond in an earlier garden I bought what was supposed to be a white miniature. I ended up with a peach thug that took over the whole surface. No idea what it was but broke my heart to put it on the compost heap as it was such a beauty. Sometimes we have to be hard-hearted!

Julia, we have had successful lily plants in the past, this one has been quite poor. So, we will look for another to replace this one next year.
It’s not a big pond and it only has 10 goldfish, including the hidden area under the deck bridge, it’s 6 feet by 4 feet and 2 feet deep.
Thank Sheila, that’s kind, pleased you like!
