Share a Garden Sunday - Amended

Today is Share a Garden Sunday
hosted by Artie of Color Outside the Lines.

I am sharing POND PLANTS.
With Meow-Meow;
otherwise known as
Not Right In The Head.
Growing from a pot within the pond is
an umbrella plant.
Behind the pond are Dwarf Pygmy Date Palms.

The delicate flowers of the
Dwarf Lily of the Nile are seen resting upon the stone.
Meow-Meow is seen drinking "Protein Water".

The fish seen in this photo is known as
Goldie Pond.

Algae is seen growing on the bottom of the pond.
This concludes our Sunday Garden Tour.

I am sure you all remember the last garden tour
when the Lily was overlooked...
The weeping, the wailing...
Apparently the Power Flowers
(Cana Lilies)
have been having a little fit.

Here are today's efforts

from the Power Flowers.
They are really putting on quite a show.

Even the leaves are competing for attention.

I saw this leaf lean in right as I snapped the picture!

This little BEAUTYwas a cast-off

from the neighbors!

Just when I thought that perhaps HE

was my favorite...

OMGoodness, OMGooness, OMGoodness!!!

Accidents of nature . . .

aren't they just the GRANDEST things!!!

Tomorrow's promise.

Loved your pond and kitty pics!

I have that same papyrus which was in a water pot...I pulled it out and through it in the ground...Now it is HUGE!

OH! Thanks so much for participating in Share a Garden Sunday! I wish so much that we had a pond, but I'd probably have strays hoping for a "catch" or even worse - raccoons. EEEkkk! Yours is beautiful though! So glad you stopped by ...

...and the kitty? what is it called?

I love your beautiful pond. We are hoping to put one in this summer...

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Such a darling post, darling Deb! I certainly hope Meow Meow isn't hoping to accidentally slurp up Goldie Pond in the midst of her sips. Beware little Goldie friend.

OK so when is the big reveal? I'm dieing to know what your hubby's been up to?

I love meow meow's colours.

Love the pond and your kitty -- my pond has a kitty, too -- but he was "turned to stone"! What beautiful pictures of the flowers.

Your garden is always so beautiful and inspiring. Love the pond and meow, meow practically stole the show. I love accidents of nature-what great color. Thanks for sharing your lovelies with us.

Hello Deborah~
I was starting to think you weren't posting anymore, then I thought, well, maybe her post gets pushed to the bottom as the new posts take precedence in the long list of blogs I read (which I need to really narrow down)! Anyway, I clicked on your name and Voila! A new post that I missed...
Your garden looks incredbly relaxing and inviting!....Shall I bring the tea? Or how about some Margarita Mix? :)

Dearest Deborah!
What a colorful and gorgeous post you have! And thank you for coming to visit my crown parade. Ah, to be young and a queen;those were thee days. I love your kitty...he seems to want to eat fish!!! God bless, Anita
