Hot & Humid Pix

Joyce(Zone 7b LI, NY)August 14, 2005

Been having a horrible heat wave here on LI all week...

Took these pix anyway...

Kind of weird juxtaposition...the iron goldfish hangs from the bottom of a rainchain.

Looks like it is smelling the flowers.

The new stepping stone path we put in ourselves this spring...

And my bowl lotus that bloomed for the first time this morning.

The whole container is about 30" wide and12" tall.

Thanks for looking....

Hope you are all staying cool!

Thanks everyone!

Annette, it's one of those resin pots, found it at a Christmas Tree Shoppe in Warwick, RI last year when we were on vacation. We are leaving today on another vacation to RI and parts of NE. Hoping to find a similar pot...this one cost $19.99.
Here is what it looked like just after I planted the lotus...

We did have a little solar powered frog spitter in it for a while but then it got so overgrown,

no one could see it, so we moved it to the pondsai.

So no, there is no running water right now...too much vegetation. There is about 1" of water over the soil surface, but I keep mosquito dunks in there to keep the mosquitos out.

I use an Olympus C-750-UZ with a polarized and UV filter.

Thanks again Annette, shrubs-n-bulbs, and Joan!

Joyce I always look forward to your pictures. Not only are they beautiful and perfectly composed but you have the coolest plants and garden. What is that purple and pink leaved one with the Caladium, another Caladium or some sort of Xanthosoma?
