Awhile ago you voted on capturing, in photos, the lilies on the granite pond that my grandmother loved to see as a child. I was short on travel time. An acquaintance graciously offered to go to the spot in Connecticut and check out the developement of the lilies for me.
As you can see, there are thousands of lily pads at this location. It is no wonder that my grandmother longed to see them once again. There were lots of lily pads by the time these photos were taken and they went back with the hope that there would be more flowers at a later date. It was only about a week later and the lily pads were fading away into the water. The weather could have been a factor, but I think it best if I go next year in July. I will share them with you then, in the meantime, here are a few glimpses of the lilies that I have found in my travels.
These lilies are from Hawaii, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sonoma, and Hess Winery. Some of them live in a controlled environment while most of them live outside. I haven’t been appreciating them the way I should. Now that I realize how fast they come and go, I’ll take a bit more time with them, next time I see them. They are magnificent flowers, aren’t they?
