This is the Village pool near my house, managed by the Forest Department.It is full of the wild Floating Lace Plant Aponogeton natans , used as an ornamental aquatic plant by pond owners. The tubers of the Floating Lace plant are used by the villagers as a vegetable.
This is my pocket pond, where I grow reluctant pink waterlilies and Sweet Flag. Although this 'pond' is in the best position in my garden where the waterlilies get the maximum sun, they give me one flower in two years! I have added the Sweet Flag Acorus calamus to give it a point of interest. The rhizomes of the Sweet Flag is a valued by the practitioners of Ayurveda. A piece of the dried rhizome can be kept in the book shelf to repel insects.
The frog on the rock is made of stone.
