Many years ago…..about 24…..I was a member of the Simpson Garden Club. Newly wed I would travel to the monthly evening meetings with my neighbours and it was a great chance to meet lots of ladies who also enjoyed gardening. We would have competitions and also a plant stall….which was a great way to expand one’s plant collection without parting with too much money. There were always cuttings, bulbs and pots to buy. On one night I purchased some waterlily tubers. I took them home and not having a pond to plant them in I decided to put them in one of our farm dams. I just threw them in and let them float to the edge of the bank. Over the years they have multiplied and when the water drops down low and the tubers are exposed the cows have a bit of a go at them but they always come back.
