Summer flowers…

For days we watched a big fat bud in our pond, and wondered when it would pop. We have 2 types of water lilies in the pond, and the one variety has been blooming for a few weeks. The buds stay tightly furled until late in the day, and then they pop open for a few hours, and close early. Nice work if you can find it.

But the large bud on the larger lily was wide open this morning. Truly spectacular.

  1. Everything looks so pretty in bloom at your place. It has been cool and rainy here for several weeks, so we’re a little slow on the buds opening.
