That's what I missed the most,

When I was down in California, there were no clouds visible, only smog!

So back home here in Montana is where I am permanent! :)

Thanks!

I finally got around to getting the old leaves picked off the Water Begonias just after I took the photo of the one in bloom, I would have done it sooner, but wasn't sure if I should because when I got them awhile back they were having a hard time staying right side up with so few leaves.

Begonias Everywhere

Even the water! I've always had a begonia in my houseplant collection, and interesting to see a water begonia ... usually a plant type has only one kind of environment (I think?)

I took a begonia straggler from inside and put in out ... live or die. I can't believe how it's thriving.

Could be time to repot/add fresh soil before dormant time.

Thanks for enlightening me again.

Thanks!

I rechecked the site I ordered them through they are actually water hyacinths,,,,I think water begonia was a plant I saw on Ebay.

The ponds water is rising nicely!

I think I saw a Larf or Larfae (baby salamander) in the pond yesterday, at first I thought it was a frog, but after thinking about what I saw and remembering what the description I read on the internet and what the photo looked like, I decided it was probably a Larf. :)

Okay

Water hyacinths, I get in now.

A salamander too! They come in all kinds of colors. Up in the Adirondacks we fished with corn kernels and they would latch on sometimes (but not to the hook).

Neat!

I figure,

the Larf must be the offspring of the salamander, or possibly salamanders I saw in the pond a while back. :)

Hopefully it's a permanent resident! :D
