Around the pond…

June 18, 2010

Here’s what I’m seeing these days around the pond. . .

There’s Lizard Tail plants growing around the edge. They like wet places, obviously!

More surprisingly, a butterfly bush is growing on the bank.  How it got there, I have no idea.

Butterly Bush (Buddleia davidii)

There are morning glories growing wild, mostly white ones.

And of course, we see lots of these flitting around. . .

Taking a short break!

There are also a whole lot of frogs in the pond, but getting a picture of them is rather difficult!

But once in a while I catch one. . .

We hear a whole lot more than we see!

I’m sure there are a lot more things living in the water than I’m seeing, but that’s it for now!
