    I purchased some plants from Pondmegastore.com. All that’s left is adding pavers along the top of the border to hide the liner.

    My lotuses are taking off as are the Creeping Jenny in the rain gutter planter. They’re filling in nicely. I added a Hosta in between the two patches of Creeping Jenny.
