Lots of flowers are blooming around the pond: Canterbury Bells, Foxgloves, Poppies, Bachelor Buttons, Clematis and Heucheras. Soon the Larkspur, Coneflowers, Cape Fuchsia, Hardy Fuchsia, Hydrangeas and another Clematis will begin blooming.
Geranium 'Wargrave Pink' grows along the front of the pond, it planted itself there and couldn't have chosen a better spot.
Not much is happening in the pond. Still no signs of Waterlily buds yet, very late for them. I lost several plants over the winter and haven't yet felt inspired to replace them. You can see the fuzzy looking string algae is growing on everything, including the floating roots of the Water Hyacinth.
The shady side of the pond has Ferns, Ligularia (which the slugs have been demolishing), Hostas and Chelone. They all grow in the shade of the fence and apple tree.
The Clematis 'Ville de Lyon' is tangled up on itself as it tries to grow up the birdhouse post.
On the left side of the pond there is an area where the liner shows that I've been trying to figure out a way to fix. I think I will have to remove the path edging and remove some soil from behind the liner, just a little concerned that I may damage the liner that way. Maybe by next month I will have figured out a way to take care of that.
