Water Lilies

Saturday, en route to the antique shop, I saw something that I consider unusual in our neck of the woods.

Water lilies. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen them “in person” before.

Marshall spotted these last month when he and I were in the area, but we weren’t able to get pictures that day.

These are located in a little pond beside the highway, and Saturday, on my way back from antiquing, there was no traffic behind me. So I stopped and snapped a couple of quick photos.

Just a little info on water lilies: each bloom opens in the morning and closes in the afternoon, and they’re very fragrant. Unfortunately, I was too far away to catch a whiff.

There’s just something magical about those pretty little white flowers floating on water.  Hmmm…wonder if I could corral a little area of the river by our house and plant water lilies…?
