Mary's water lily blooms!

I love this water lily -- it's the first bloom for this plant and it's just so beautiful it looks like a fake -- but it isn't!! Mary gave me this little lily for the pond in early June and it has really thrived in the water. I don't know if it is the gold fish or the locust tree leaves or what, but the water lily's leaves got nice and huge and now it's blossoming.

We only get 3 days out of the other lily's blossom, so I feel lucky to have caught this one on film. (on digital 0's and X's ??)


The weather has really shifted here in northeast Ohio. Yesterday was extremely windy and with the exception of my white and pink hibiscus in the side yard, most of my flowers have faded and need to be dead headed.
