Pond Study #5 :Water Hyacinth


I bought these Water Hyacinths back in June...the Koi decided they loved them for lunch so I've been keeping them in a large tub near the pond until they bloomed. The fish found this one shortly after I placed it in the pond and started to paint ( it just didn't look right in the tub )...they pushed it over sideways into the water as they began to gobble up the root system. I put some koi food in on the other side of the pond..but that didn't work. By the time I finished the painting, the delicate( and beautiful ) flower was pretty beat up...I put it back into it's quiet little tub of water. Here's the little 5x7 study.
