Fun at the pond

Peace and quiet on the dock. A dragonfly landed on my butterfly t-shirt!
A bullfrog seems to like my turtle basking platform.
Bambi has been trimming my hibiscus, but the law of doubling works. Plant double what you want. Works for the squirrels and bulbs, too!
The hibiscus are in bloom, as are the pink phlox - they smell heavenly.

Cute dragonfly shot and I love the froggie. Your hibiscus is pretty. I see your cute kitties out wondering too. Great shots and post. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Beautiful. I have seen and heard of alligator basking platforms but I guess turtles like to bask also.

Hibiscus is not only a beautiful flower, it is also used in medicine (hypertension). With the knowledge that is available nowadays, we don't look at plants just for their beauty; we also try to assess their health benefit for the human body.

The frog seems to be taking things in stride!

Your decking is proving its worth for R&R!!! the father's garden was rather overgrown - but with beauty; including very abundant phlox. It perfumes the air so wonderfully, but I made the mistake of cutting some for inside. We both nearly suffocated from its pungency. Onto the compost. I also got several good shots of the bees enjoying the hypericum - your new header reminded me! YAM xx

You've found many things by just being patient on your new dock.

The frog is cute and I love the hibiscus. I hope the deer will leave a few flowers for you to enjoy. :-)
