Water hawthorn.


Water hawthorn.

Flowers fairly insignificant but the evening fragrance of vanilla combined with honeysuckle is wonderful.

lovely flower ray/jane, i have a stem on one of my soldiers and im sure there is a bud coming, would love a newt or two ;o))

4 Jul, 2010

 

Hi San....our soldiers have grown quite big and like you seems there are buds..cant wait to see it flower ! Pond now 3 years old and just seen one newt the other day !

4 Jul, 2010

 

hi jane,i thought i had a flower but the stem wasnt above water enough and then it dissapeared so hope that wasnt it lol, great you have a newt now, i noticed you have green water weed on top, does that come naturally as i have seen small bits which i think is this you have on top of water,

4 Jul, 2010

 

Lol San....those small bits were what we started with...must have come in with one of the plants a couple of years ago. When it gets too thick...by the way it grows real fast....we just scoop it out ! It helps to keep our water crystal clear so we were told. Funny to see the frogs pop up with it clinging to their heads ! Lol

5 Jul, 2010

 

No worries Drb .. Jane forgot where the like button on me was years ago .. lol

5 Jul, 2010

 

Ha! Ha! Ray, although I'm sure it's not true.

5 Jul, 2010

 

Aye perhaps a little harsh .. just so long as I know its animals birds plants then me perhaps thats why I love this fragrance reminds me of food !

5 Jul, 2010

 

I love vanilla so this must be a rather pleasing scent to be around. Lucky you!

7 Jul, 2010

 

Gosh Ray, your'e lucky to come fourth. I'm usually a poor last.

7 Jul, 2010

 

Hi Folks, this is lovely. Does it survive the Winter Jane/Ray?

7 Jul, 2010

 

Aye OB it only takes a few flowers to get quite an intense fragrance.

Fourth Drb ? You seen how many birds and animals we get and when the young arrive well forget it ..

Hi Dawn yes its fully hardy and can be left in pond year round.Its water hyacinth thats not hardy.

7 Jul, 2010

 

Oh yes, I must have been thinking of water hyacinths. Sounds like they'd be good for me then. :-)

7 Jul, 2010

 

The fragrance is lovely Dawn...........

7 Jul, 2010

 

Worth having then :-) Another on the WishList, lol

8 Jul, 2010

 

Thought you were having fish and chips not vanilla lol its pretty and would love to be able to smell it.

8 Jul, 2010

 

Aye Dawn given the size of your pond / lake you might need a few .. if you have a bottle of vanilla essence Sixpence its almost same aroma .

Yes it was fish and chips with mushy peas of course tonight.

8 Jul, 2010

 

No I have nt got a bottle lol, I know it was fish chips plus your mussy peas my favourite a birdy told me he he he

8 Jul, 2010

8 Jul, 2010
