Today I completed a rill that goes from the header pond to the main pond. Planted Pennywort to eventually conceal the liner along the backside.

'rill'; good word--very few even know what it means, so I applaud your useage!

As mrsclem noted, just watch your pennywort! I haven't found it too invasive yet and have actually been overwintering some to make sure I don't lose it, but this summer, I did have some make it outside and I too am not making sure it's not a problem! I find it grows nicely in a pot, though and had flowers on it for the first time. Surprised me what they looked like!



And, they told me what they were saying and though your name DID come up, I was sworn to secrecy so unless you gots lots of bribe money, I can't repeat it...(got to raise some $$ now to pay CW's ransom zoom fee. Or something like that!).

I got the pennywort from a friend several years ago. The plants in the rill and header are planted in pea gravel whereas the ones in the main pond are free floating near the irises. It’s funny, but it wasn’t until about August the pennywort began taking off. Prior to that it was competing with watercress and was loosing to the watercress. Then the caterpillars and aphids ravaged the watercress almost overnight and once they were gone, the pennywort made a rebound.

The pennywort are like miniature lotuses.

I hope you’re not floating away up their, j.w! We’re up on a hill and didn’t get the flooding.

Up THERE, I meant. I know j.w’s area (and many places north and east of Seattle) were hit by major flooding. All those rivers couldn’t handle the 7+ inches of rain since Saturday. My heart goes out to them.

We did not have it bad and we are up on our hill in Arlington Heights. South and North and East and West of us took the hits. We were hidden from it all right in between and I don't even think the Stilly river overflowed it's banks much at the bottom of our hill. Only lost power yesterday for an hour or so. No biggy and glad! They got hit hard up in Mt Vernon which is only about 30 miles North of us. I was able to even get my walking in during the storms. Got a bit wet and almost blown over but I'm still alive and loved the sun we had today!

I’m glad you’re safe and sound, Queen of Animated gifs!
Our dear friends up in Ferndale aren’t so fortunate. The Nooksack River flooded them out of their home. Whatcom county has the worst flooding in over 130 years.
