The Water Garden

Today I am sharing some photos of water lilies in the Water Garden at the Chicago Botanical Gardens.

Thanks for visiting. Tomorrow is my last post featuring the Chicago Botanical Gardens for now.

  1. I think water lilies are so beautiful!! I wish I had some luck with them in our pond... can't seem to get them to bloom. :(

  2. I liked the photograph of three water lilies because the Water Lily was the omen of peacefulness... :)

  3. I've been fascinated with lily pads since I was a kid. Knowing now that flowers also grow there, they become even more fascinating. The relation of the name never occurred to me.

  4. Thanks everyone.

    Jennifer - good luck with yours. I hope they bloom for you one day. I have no idea how to grow them.

    Aulawi - that is one of my favorites too. "omen of peacefulness" I like that.

    Ratty - Yes, though most places I've seen lily pads only seemed to have the lilies. The Botanical Gardens knows how to get a bloom it seems. :-)
