Today's Flowers # 45

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time.

Lake Hodgson in all its beauty with the Water Lilies alive in the bay.
They are a really neat flower.
You do have to maneuver the boat close to get a shot from above.
It is a beautiful flower.
You can see a lot of other great flowers at this site.

Very nice Tom. I bet there are plenty of fish lurking underneath the waterlilies.

I love water lilies... the Brooklyn Botanical Garden has a great variety. I haven't really had time to see if the gardens here in Norfolk have them. Thanks for stopping by.

Nice shots. I took a couple of these yesterday. I like the way the water had covered some of the lilypads in your shots. Very pretty!
