Consider the Lilies of...the pond.


     Over the past 40 years I’ve been blessed with three different little Florida garden ponds. Two were (supposed to be) fish ponds. For the first I diligently researched to determine an interesting breed of fish that could survive our harsh heat and water conditions.  541 more words
