Most of mine have a great smell, in the summer when they are blooming the back yard smells great. I need to be at the boat on my older lappy to get the name. I never remember them all.

I think it is razzelberry. I put my special hybrid lilies in the hot tub pond to keep track of them. A swap with another GPF member.

I checked on 'razzleberry' but only found a day lily with that name. So, hie thee to thy boat!

The water lily is Razzberry- Dark pink, double flower, available at Pond Megastore.
Thank you! I have the list of lily names but on my old lappy that is on the boat. I need to send it to myself so it is on this one also.

I love it smells great, blooms a lot and beautiful!

My yellow flag is blooming like crazy this summer. I never did get around to cutting it back in size, will do later in the year.

Another one of my lilies, the flowers are huge! It is one I turned loose in the 1000 gl stock tank. Some of the flowers are 8 inches across

And the iris are beautiful!

The garden is really starting to kick into high gear now. Some of the iris are done, some are just starting. Three water lily buds up, but none open quite yet. Forget me not is already demanding to be cut back. Pond water is still kind of dark (wish we'd get some good rain to help flush out those tannins! we've had a horrific year for tree pollen & debris.) But all in all - things are looking good!

The fish love it when I top up the pond. They 'climb' right up onto the shelves & rocks looking for snacks!

Yellow iris are done, but the others are still going strong

Here is a over view of our ponds, stream, bog. Can still see the big pond, the lilies are taking over, eventually it blends in

@addy1 ; do you know anyone with a drone? Sure would be interestingto see directly overhead as with all your vegetation, it's hard to actually conceptualize all you have!

Though I don't need one to do what I suggest above, I got one and am still learning how to control it; not good to lose control in a closed environment where a crash is 90% chance of ending up in the water and ruining the drone. I'm actually hopeing to get different closeup views of the banks and of my yard.

had one no clue where it is right now. My biggest issue is my hands can not handle fine control moves for any length of time. They go numb or start hurting real bad. So it would crash!
