I am so glad that I created this natural pond at the Golden Garden behind the Hands-On-House. It may be small but it seems to be a haven for some dragonflies.

The pond is perpetually filled to the brim with water because of the high water table and this supports the growing of floating and submergent aquatic plants. Just look at the attached photos to see how well the Pistia stratiotes (common name: Water Lettuce; Family: Araceae), Cyrtosperma johnstonii (Family: Araceae) and other plants are growing here.
