When I got there, 3 people were standing waist high in her pond weeding out cattails as a birthday gift! This will allow the lotuses to florish!

Good job photographing Nageliela ! Mine has been in bloom for weeks, but after several attempts at pics, I gave up. Hilarious!

I forgot to post that she had a nice garden in the circle of her fence. Here's a great lily.

Kathy, I am not sure where to post this, but guess what is just lost it's last bloom today? My Phal. Tying Shin Cupid 'Montclair'. Didn't we get that at the end of March? I am thrilled that the blooms lasted so long.
