Lily Pads

The following pics are the reason I went to Longwood Gardens on Monday.  They actually put black dye in the water to suppress the growth of algae and you can see little fish skittering around each pool that eat the algae and keep the plants healthy. If you’d like to see the pictures in closer detail, just click on them.

Doesn't it look like the big ones are launching an attack?

Other people came to admire the beauty of nature

    I’m here! Getting caught up. My goodness you’ve been having some adventures. The flowery and Amish ones- beautiful! The family ones, eh, not so much. Sigh. If only that woman would take her meds.

    My apologies for not getting here sooner. I’ve been in full-on hermit mode. You’re bookmarked now and I’ll be a better friend from now on. Mwah! ~LA

    I absolutely love it there. Now that fall’s here the mums will be in the conservatory and the leaves will be turning. Gotta get out there…
