Water Lilies

    One of my most rewarding achievements was digging my pond.  I did it to create more habitat for plants and animals on my property.  Once built, I went out to find natural occurring flora to get it established quickly.  One of the things I planted in the muck on the bottom of the pond were water lily tubers that I found floating on Horseshoe Lake.

    They now provide me with yearly pleasure, as I watch the lily pads and then the flowers, poke their heads above the water to bloom.   It was a wet mucky mess to plant them, but I am now well rewarded for doing it.
