The water hyacinth has opened, originally uploaded by malyousif.

I got three water hyacinths yesterday for the pond, as well as a top-up of the butterfly plant and a little dogweed to provide shade for the fish especially now that the temperature in Bahrain is on the increase, and to add colour and texture to the pond as well.

I chose the three hyacinths which were in bud stage so that they can flower in the pond and hopefully for the flowers to stay a little longer.

I didn’t expect that they would flower so soon though, but of course I am very happy to have them in my garden.
