Had to replant one of our Lotus today and work on the filters in our pond. To early for Lotus blooms and a few others but a number of other things are starting to bloom. Figured while I was in and out of the pond I would take some pics and share. Sorry for the quality. Using my phone. Hope you enjoy!

Aquatic Forget me nots. These will actually be fully covered in blooms come summer and will cascade down our waterfall. Will post pics of it then. Looks beautiful when it does!

The plants around the pond just do there thing through the winter. The ones in the pond, not already submerged have be trimmed once they die off then submerged to keep from freezing. Come spring time they are good to go!
