Water Garden Wednesday!
Lake Larson in its June glory - this has been a good year for the gardens.
I have a few holes to fill around the pond, but that will be an easy job to find some suitable candidates. I'm actually have had a hell of time finding water lettuce this year to float in the pond. Reluctantly, I got a couple of water hyacinths which the fish are beating the daylights out of! Hungry little beasties!!
