I guess this Castor bean is quite hardy Lori, if it grows in your garden. Looks so tropical. I wonder if they've heard of it in Hungary?

I started out with a much larger inground pond... we had a terrible late winter storm that sealed it off... the 60 or so fish I had suffocated... it was horrible... so the next spring I reworked the pond into this one...and had three little fish that I took inside the autumn before... they settled into this pond and seemed quite happy...but I've brought them indoors and they are over-wintering in an aquarium with the waterlilies.
btw.... who is the cute little creature in your avatar?
