My aforementioned lust has reared it's head again...this time with regard to water garden plants! I have an old wash tub that I tried to use as a water garden last year with so-so results, mostly because I started too late in the season and used puny Walmart plants. But this year, I'm going for the gusto...I mean, look at these beautiful lillies! Some even bloom at night...my spinx moths will love that! As I do some research on the net, here are some links I found with better prices...

I'll check out some local nurseries, too...plus I still have a couple puny plants from last year that I'm wintering over in the veggie crisper in my fridge. So hopefully, I'll end up with a bona-fide water garden, and not tubs of green, slimy goo!

The last time I had a water garden with flowers like this, a raccoon came over and trashed the place. Several times. Sigh.

Yea Chuck, that's a concern for me, too. I wouldn't even bother with a water feature unless I could use the wash tubs on legs like I have. There are WAY too many "varmints" up here to have a ground-level water feature of any kind. In fact, I'm surprised that there hasn't been any climbing/ransacking yet...perhaps this year...

Thanks for the encouragement, Leslie!
