Hello,

I used to be a regular on this forum and life sort of got away from me. My water plant selection is pretty much down to some cattails and Iris pseudocorus so I was wondering if anyone would be thinning plants this year and might like to trade for land plants?

At one point, I had several hardy water lilies, lotus, parrots feather, lettuce, cattails, rush, Iris pseudocorus, celery and a number of other plants. :(

Last year, a mink took up residency under the bricks by the pond and taunted me in the fall, while it ate my fish! I saw a dead mink on the road last week and as much as I love critters, I sure hope it was the one that ate my fish! LOL The other day I took my two year old for a ride on the mower and saw that we still have some fish alive so we were very happy to see them! The mink was downing them at an alarming rate!

I am going to be getting rid several pots of lilies - hardy. If you want them, I would be glad to send them. However, I still have ice and snow on my pond so it would be around mid April before I can get them out. I hope. If you are interested email me mstella@gci.net

Oh, that would be excellent if you have them to spare! I used to have a few and they were so beautiful! Then the koi got big enough to dump them. LOL I think I still have one teeny tiny one that is limping along. Of course that darn mink may have tossed that one. It's been too wet to go up and look.
