Life Goes On

The updated Pond has been complete for awhile now, and all the plants have grown back and flourished. Except one... The Elephant Ears. Heartbroken, we assumed it was gone for good. However, today life was found! Scott noticed a small pair of ears rising from the original spot. So glad to see it coming back.

You can see it was taller than Scott when he had to move it to re-do the pond last year.

Here is the updated pond. One waterfall, no more moat. The Pompus grass at the head of the water fall is growing just as planned. The decorative grass that overlooks the pond has grown beyond all
expectation and looks beautiful.   

Another return from the dead is the Banana Tree. We have had it for almost 3 years and it didn't grow much taller than 2 feet and never looked healthy.

This spring it just started sprouting up. It looks very sturdy now.

The little Pompus grass planted in another corner of the yards, was suppose to become a screen for privacy from a back neighbor. Again, this too, sprang up like a 17-year old teenager. It is gorgeous to look at. 

Summer is full blown!
