    I finally got some flowers from the Obedient plants. It's their second year in the bog.

    One of my new lizard tails flowered and the blue Lobelia cardinalis has flowered for the last month.

    I have a lily and a lotus open. Still not sure if my leaf cutting hurt my gorgeous pink lotus! But the wabasabi is massive and white. I think it will develop a slight pink tint if I remember right. I also have very dainty flowers on the water willow and pretty yellow blooms on the floating heart. Happy pond times!

    2 of the 3 Turtle Islander lilies are blooming. I'm hoping it's in my small pond up front. Canna and lilies in 75 gallon pond.

    Thanks. Really hoping that 3rd lily is still somewhere. Tried to divide and repot this spring but it was taking too long so just put them all in pots bare root with no labels. Have 2 good buds in the small pond and they look dark colored so hoping for fuchsia!

    I got a tiny purple flower to bloom on my lemon bucopa cutting I've been working my butt of to transition to be emergent, so that was a big reward. However, it fell off today!

    My society garlic has a cluster of adorable purple trumpets.

    My yellow snowflakes have been following regularly, but the blooms only last half a day!

    And my pennywort has been flowering not-stop for months. Little clusters of tiny tiny tiny four-petaled white flowers.

    I know you've seen thousands of them, but this is our first Lily...just bought it last week.

    Yupper. It caught me off guard. It was close yesterday, and with all the rain today, I completely forgot. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked out on the deck and looked down. At first I thought, what's that in the pond? Then realized it was the lily!

    My first 3 lilies bloomed and died while I was at work. Like they would come to the surface on a Monday, open after I left for work and close before I got home and be done blooming by Friday. I was dying!!
    When my lotus popped a bud up, I had my family checking on it everyday since they were home. LOL They had to send me pictures every afternoon. I was so tickled that it bloomed for the first time on Saturday.
