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.
