    Here are two pictures of the pond this summer. If you look carefully, you can the neighbor's port-a-potty across the street. :LOL:

    Very nice. Can't wait until my own plants mature. I just have to ask though, is the port a potty an all year thing, or is there work been done on the house.

    LOL! They are a sweet little family across the street, adding onto the house since they are adding on to their family! A renovation and a new baby at the same time - plus a toddler and a dog! I'm sure the port a potty will be gone soon, but it's been fun watching workers walk over to it. It leans way back and I'm just waiting for the day it goes over backwards!

    Thanks! I don't know what kind it is. It was a lovely pass-along plant. I think it is really pretty, too! I love the pink and yellow together.

    If it does go get pictures. I know it's awful to say such a thing, but at the same time, I'd still want to see. Glad it's not a permanent fixture, not in this heat.

    Yes -- big elephant ears! They are in the ground, outside the pond. I got the bulbs in a two-pack, from Sam's Club.
    They come back every year down here.
