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 Garden


I was out taking photos of the iris in the gardens yesterday morning and had to take these photos of the Pond Garden.

Here's the lilac in full bloom - a Mother's Day gift from Sarah.  Lilacs are the city flower of Harbin, China where Sarah was living in 2009 when she told me to buy myself one for Mother's Day.


I spotted the goldfish.  Not as many as last year, but it's neat to see they survived the winter.


This water lily is getting bigger every year.  I hope to see blooms again this year.


The water iris are not in full array yet but soon will be.



The Joe Pye weed is sprouting well.


This is a volunteer don't know if it's a seedling from the plant pictured below it.



The butterfly weed is doing well too.


There's my study window where I have a fine view of the Pond Garden.

How lovely to be able to sit by the window and admire your beautiful pond garden. It is wonderful. You must spend a lot of time weeding.

Just to answer your question on my post today regarding whether these are the last Elephants that I share. The answer is no but not for a while. I am giving myself a break and when resumming, I will be posting in the order that I was travelling around Malawi so I know the next olace has no Elephants nevertheless I am sure you will find it interesting. Each place we visited was different. When I reach South Africa, there will be more Elephants.
