Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Pond Surprise


Do you recognize this flower?

I was spreading the last of the mulch this morning and in walking by the pond a flash of lavender caught my eye. The water hyacinths are blooming. I hadn't even noticed they had buds. The ones I had last year never bloomed. They are lovely. I hope they last for awhile.

























Here's what else is blooming in the pond.
