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!
Will anyone have extra water plants?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
