my two watercress monsters
The first is my skippy filter. Wait. Did I say skippy filter (100 gallon stock tank)? Can you find it under all the watercress? It has overflowed the skippy and is now rooting itself into the ground around the filter. Every night I have to pull fistfulls of roots away from my overflow and outlet. I have little heart shaped baskets I put over both drains, but some little masked marauder likes to take the baskets and place them very neatly on the side of the top pond. Must need baskets for their nightime harvests. Good thing the baskets can't hold water. lol
If you look closely in this pic you can see a little white to the lower left of the picture. This is one of the baskets protecting the outflow from the watercress roots. Those raccoons are able to pick the baskets out from the tangled mess without disturbing a leaf. The only proof that they were there is the baskets are placed very nicely, right-side up, next to each other on the rocks.
This is my Nessie monster watercress floating planter. Now my koi are able to snack whenever they want. I think this is the only reason I am able to have lillies in the pond now.
