Papyrus in Morning Sun

The papyrus "lights up" in the morning sun, while the pond is in shadow.

Cool banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you for all the nice comments & thumbs. Smiling

We put the papyrus in a pot on the steps in the shallow end
of our pond (previously our pool) in 2018.

Last year on a windy day, it sailed across to the
opposite side......I didn't know they float! Hilarious!
We liked it there, so I tethered it to a brick to keep it
from wandering about....so far, so good.

I haven't found the exact pic I used for the banner yet,
but here are some others.

Many thanks my friends. All comments, acorns & thumbs very appreciated.
Glad to share our pond with you. Smiling

Just uploaded a 49 second clip of some ducks that hung out
a while after the main flock (~30) took off earlier.

Gotta go to the feed store for more scratch before they come back
later this afternoon, or I'm in deep trouble.

Enslaved by ducks. Rolling my eyes.
