    What is the flowering plant in the foreground in the immediately preceding photo. It resembles a Tradescantia.

    Very pretty flowers and everything looks very natural too. It must be summer there now? Do you get hard winters?

    Thank you.
    Here the winters are long and cold with temperatures sometimes below - 20 - 25 degrees.

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr, my you are brave walking on the ice. Guess it is pretty thick tho. What's that little spikey plant at the start of the video? It must be pretty hardy to survive your winters. It's a neat looking plant.

    Oh thanks for the plant I.D. I have those. I thought it looked like it had skinnier spikes but guess it just shrinks up due to the cold so looked like a different plant. I have some of the variegated ones too.

    That variegated Yucca that you have JW I think is less hardy cause I was going to get one and discovered it may not come back for me. I have that same Yucca MyGardenFlower as you. Yours looks quite good, mine is covered in snow right now, like most of my ponds are right now, even with big 1500 watt heater. Bottom pond is mostly covered in snow and has lots of snow piled on top right now.
