Just something to break up the surface area, until the pond establishes. The bottom is planted up with Canadian pond weed from my mate Dawn..bless her......

These are water hyacenths. They won't make it through the winter unless yo take them out of the pond and put them in water in your greenhouse, out of the frost.

Your joking....I didnt know that ha ha ha ........your not having me on are you Toto?

Pleased to hear the weed is in Maureen. I dont think Toto is joking, lol.
Hey Ray, guess what your next project is - the greenhouse extension.

I wish I were joking but it is true. They are tender. I had them in the past. they grow well in the warm weather but the frost kills them off.

Hi Maureen, I'm pleased the weed and snails are OK. I did notice one tiny one in the weed but I didnt realise there were so many ..... looks like its ferile around here too, lol. Thank goodness the big ones have survived too :-)

Yes thanks Dawn......We see the big ones crawling around the liner, but the water hasnt cleared enough yet to see the small ones.I suppose it will take a while after all the planting that went in the bottom.....

oh Milky...you're going to have such fun with that pond...I just brought my water hyacinthe indoors and put it in the aq with my fishies and waterlilies...I've overwintered them this way for the last three winters... it weakens them a little but they bounce back as soon as they are put back in the pond. The fish are so huge I'm going to need a bigger aquarium. but for now, this is better than taking the chance of another freeze up liek the one that killed all my fish winter before last.

My goodness Lori, that must have been really cold to kill all you fish as well. Yes I have put my Hyacinths inn buckets of water in the greenhouse under the staging......I wont tread in them there ha ha ha Lol

Oh for a greenhouse...you lucky woman!

Thanks Lori....I wouldnt be without it now, but I do wish it were bigger.......

Yes...yes... I do know how that works... our needs always expand to greater than the present area available to us!! You must be inexhaustible! no wonder Ray is pictured sleeping so often...he just watches you whizzing around and gets tired out!! poor man.

How does he watch with his eyes shut Lori??????.......ha ha ha

I bet that's a secret he won't divulge...! Like when they watch TV with their eyes shut! lol... and will only admit to "thinking" when we try to put on something we'd like to watch!

You are so right Lori............
