Garden Party

Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a Garden Party today. Hop on over and see the Spring gardens ready to "show their stuff" in this new gardening season.
We are a little further behind the southern part of the U.S. for our planting time. I've just recently hauled out plants to put outside. As the spring and summer progress, things will fill-in.
This is one of my vignettes in the yard. This barrell has a pump that is hidden by the plants in the picture which recirculates the water and makes a nice splashing sound.
The pond plants are emerging and this will be heavily engulfed in plants come August (we'll be pulling them out of the streams). I love the sound of the splashing water.

We have had Koi for about 18 years. There's something relaxing about watching them swim. Of course, there are goldfish which liven the pond with their brilliant orange and their fantails. Welcome to a small part of our Spring Garden.

Oh my goodness! Your pond is beautiful. We've only had ours 3 years but we love it. I'm going to have to study your pictures some more to see what you have planted. I'm guessing that whatever you have in Kansas would be similar to what we would do in Oklahoma. Our water plants are just now peeking out of the water. Some are not planted yet.
Come visit my blog some time.

Your garden looks like a botanical garden on tour! It's just fabulous. Really love your hose wreath...it's darling. We have a pond tour every July in Austin. Have you ever had yours on tour? It's a showstopper! :)Nancy
