Look what greeted me today! I love it when the water lilies start blooming. 😀
This one is in the fish pond. We bought both our lilies as bulbs a few years ago… the pink one (above) is doing great, and gives us quite a few flowers a year… the white one however has clearly got it’s mind set on world domination – and is growing like a proper bugger. So far there’s already 4 bulbs on the white one, and the leaves are everywhere!
The white one is in the front garden pond (no fish), as it simply grows too much. It had some sort of growth-spur last year, when the fish used to be in the front garden pond… so much so we had to remove it and stick it in the back garden pond (which at that point was much smaller and had no fish) – it was taking over the whole pond!
Now however, the white one can grow as much as it likes – it’s got the whole pond to itself, and the fish are very happy with the much smaller water lily in their new pond. 😀
