So Julie was playing with my camera and came up with some pretty cool pictures of one of my pretty cool plants. She keeps hinting that she should have her own camera.
I bought this Corkscrew Rush (Juncus effusus 'Spiralis') several years ago because I liked it, but I never got around to doing anything with it. It just lived in its nursery pot in a rubber stock tank filled with water. Amazingly, it survived.
Recently I transplanted it into the chocolate terra cotta pot and put the whole thing into its new home. I am slowly, very slowly, transforming a vintage bathtub into a small, very small, pond. For the most part, the "pond" has merely looked tacky, but I think that when I am finished, it will be alright.
The "pond" is a favorite place for the cats to come drink water. The neighbor's dog comes to drink there, too. Personally, I would look for "cleaner" water, but they seem to really like it.
Julie is planning to enter the black and white photo in the County Fair. I love Tiger's reflection in the water.
Have a beautiful day!
It's been a glamorous week in the garden
