Austin Pond Society Annual Pond Tour – South, 2017

The Austin Pond Society held its 23rd Annual Pond Tour on June 3-4, 2017. The South Tour was held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 with a total of 9 ponds. All were exceptional and all offered something just a little different,

Below is a video of the South Ponds.

The Beauty of Water Lilies and Lotus.

Before attending the Austin Pond Society monthly meeting held at Zilker Botanical Gardens this past Monday, I had the opportunity to take a few pictures of the Willy Burg Memorial Pond that is putting on a show of water lilies and lotus. Every year, under the guidance of Darren Bayhi assisted by volunteers from the Pond Society, they clean and scrub out this pond and then spend considerable time in re-potting the water lilies and lotus and the other plants that occupy this pond throughout the year.
Enjoy the images.
