AND SHE MAKES HER ENTRANCE...

Here she is...my first waterlilly plant..she's a beauty...this is actually the third bloom in two weeks since we brought this baby home. Last year I had ordered two bulbs - pink and yellow - "planted " them in the pond and waited ...and waited...and nothing!! We followed the instructions to a tee, I wonder if our fish ate them?...or maybe the spot was not sunny enough for them to get a good start. Regardless, I'm hoping this waterlilly makes it through the winter...any helpful hints anyone? It is located in a quarter acre pond with Bass and Blue gill (no beautiful koi!) The top photo has a damselfly resting on the flower in the upper right corner, when you enlarge the picture...she looks like she's all eyes!! Thanks to all for the offers of help on my new blog...eventually I'll get this blogging thing!!...(baby steps) Daylilly...what Daylilly?!?

How delicate and delightful with the damselfly. I love the soft color of the daylily.

Water lilies and daylilies, it doesn't get any better than that. We also live out in the country, and we built our log cabin. Haven't dug a pond though. I'm very impressed. Found you on blotanical. Welcome.~~Dee
