Water Lilies

These are in the ponds in my garden - my first water lilies.
I had the lilies sitting to high in the water - they needed to be deeper to bloom.

I learned a lot from going on the Water Lily Tour at the Duke Gardens. Just like the fish, the lilies will overwinter.

Maybe next year, I'll get a dark pink - they are so pretty!
