I had NO IDEA lily pads grew flowers.
I truly didn't.
So you can imagine just how enthralled I was when I paddled out on the lake the other night and found these:
I would have posted all the photos I took....but in my new-found knowledge in the fact lily pads do in fact grow blooms,
....you can imagine just how many captures there were.
So many in fact, that I think I almost used up my memory card.
I felt like a kid in a candy store.
(NOTE: I did NOT pick this flower.
I found it floating in the middle of the lake all by itself.
Broken off and upside down.
So as not to waste it- I used it to decorate my kayak.)
And here I thought lily pads were strictly just Frog Beds.
I need to get out more.
