Looks a little like a Blyxia/pogostemon helferi combo with emersed Rotala Rotundifolia at the back. lol

Nice Uwagima setup there. lol

its practically the same as HC, it grows like a weed around here.
theres sooo many to choose from, i was overwhelmed. if this takes ok, i might do another one slightly larger next spring.notice the landscape rock in the rose tub? ive got loads of it.

my wife and son come back from there hols in 2 days, so we'll see how long those plants last :lol: my lad is a little monkey let me tell ya! he likes to pull the heads of flowers :? allways when your not looking of course

mmm...im good at putting lead roofs on churches! :lol:

well my wife returns from her home country after 10 weeks away on wednesday! so it looks like my funs over, no more wrecking the house with lights fish tanks, leads, camera equipment.
so maybe i'll leave you all in peace for a while. ( i hear a sigh of relief?)

anyway my mission was to make the garden look nice for her arrival. its kinda nice( should of seen it before :( )

and i just realized my sons playpit was at the bottom of the garden...with play sand in it! :lol:

cheers folks!
