More ‘planting’

Another addition to my pond last July – water violet (hottonia palustris). I did spend quite a long time deciding where to drop them! This plant will produce violet flowers but is actually from the primrose family. The feathery leaves will provide shelter for beetles, dragonfly nymphs and tadpoles.
