I have full size versions of four of the photos (they will take a while to load). Otherwise, the photos are smaller than the screen.

On 9/8/07, I took these two photos.

Water lettuce covering the pond - there is water celery at the top of the photo and the floating impatiens at the bottom.

After getting these two plants at Lilypons on 9/2/07, I took these two photos on 9/4/07:

Pond on 8/18/07, facing southwest. The hardy canna is blooming (upper left tall things). You cannot miss seeing the water lettuce as it covers almost the entire pond.

The first photo is of the entire 1800 gallon pond on 7/28/07. The next two photos are of an open yellow "Comanche" hardy water lily and an open "blue beauty" tropical water lily as well as a bud on 7/28/07.

Marginal area on 6/23/07. This photo was to show how the regular cattails and hardy water canna keep toppling over. At the bottom of the photo can be seen what remains of the yellow flag iris that grew in the overflow area after I chopped them down after flowering to try to reduce the chance that they might puncture the liner as they are growing wild in there.

Spring 2007:

These three photos are not of the 1800 gallon pond. They are of iris that I transplanted from my 1800 gallon pond pots over to a low lying area in the front of the property. When I repotted the iris, I had a lot to get rid of and used to dig them into the ground out there. When it rains, that area floods but otherwise, it is dry. This last month, there has been a drought and yet the iris flowered well. The yellow flag iris in the back of the third photo have just finished flowering. I was surprised to discover a red fulva iris flower here on 6/2/07. The original plant in the pond died a few years ago so this was a nice surprise. I actually bought a new one this year but now it looks like I could dig some of this one up if I wanted to (probably will not).

On 6/19/05, I awoke to find my 1800 gallon pond was pumped down to only a few hundred gallons thanks to the neighbor's Neopolitan mastiff who moved some of the waterfall rocks to divert water out of the pond the day before without my noticing. I took these photos of the pond after I had put in about 30 minutes worth of well water but the pond is still very low.

Summer 1997:

The large pond at two months old, facing north-west, July, 1997.
Lilies in my big pond on July 21, 1997. The two white ones are albata, the pink one is Fabiola, and the orange one at the top is a Comanche. The albata put out the most weight of leaves, the Chromatella (out of sight) put out the most leaves (a smaller kind of lily), while the Comanche flowered the most. All flowered heavily except the Fabiola which only put out half a dozen flowers all season. This is the photo that used to be at the top of my pond page index.
