Around the pond edge


By diydick


Got the camera out again today for photos on my garden re-design blog and thought I would snap up a few extras.Enjoy.

Marginal plant flower came out today

Just had to get this

A more distant shot

Aaaah,I think I’ll rest my poorly wings here awhile in the sun,those Houttuynia cordata ‘Chameleon’ are really getting red now

No not you,you’re a different sort,and your green…comedian more like it!

Thats better,thats what I meant

It Red! Redit! Redit!


Forgot what these are called

Wait a second…in the clouds I have a vision….that’s it… Forget

When taking my garden rubbish to the tip yesterday a chap was about to throw this pot away so I took it off him…Wasteful Man! I believe in re-cycling and a bargain! This evening I noticed there was still a waterplant in the remains of the stream edge getting trodden on,so I rescued it and potted it up for now.It’s done well as I only planted it last year from a few seed heads taken from one around the pond,and the stream has not been running for a few months!

PMSL! Bogwitch,that is so funny,I can picture it now.
I too collect all similar things and have them inside in display cabinets and some in the garden.
Some of them I paint up myself as they come just plain white or black.I still have a few more to do when I get time.

I too like the fairy with the kinky stockings, if fact I like the whole blog. You have some nice natural planting there. I do hope you never tire of the Houttuynia, it's such a colourful plant but you've got it for life lol
