first water lily

1 Jun

water lily 13 007A day or two ago I spotted a couple of water lilies in bud and finally yesterday saw one in full flower.  This pinkish/red variety grows very large leaves that stand up out of the water, nearly hiding some of the flowers.  The flat leaves you might see in the background belong to a white variety that usually is a little later to open.
