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.
