Pond plant surprise
We have a 300 gallon plastic vat in our backyard that's serving as a makeshift container pond. It's home to some small native fish, a pair of bream and a few baby catfish. A couple of weeks ago an aquarium customer of Gregg's give him this potted pond plant. It's thriving in its new home. Early this morning I went out to say hello to the bream (they're tame enough now to swim up and greet you) and I discovered the tiny purple flower that had opened overnight! I texted this photo to Gregg at work to show him. What a nice surprise!
