Waterlilies are Blooming


    The waterlilies in my pond are blooming.  While they are not as exquisite or as colorful as some of the domesticated waterlilies, I look forward to seeing them bloom every year.  Down, under the water in the muck they grow from a long tuber that looks like the arm of an octopus.  Years ago when I first built the pond, I saw some of the tubers floating on Horseshoe Lake and brought them home and stuck them in the mud of my pond.  
    In 2007 I did a painting of waterlily which can be seen at:
