Hop on my lily pad

While at the lake I stopped to check out the lily pads



Then while searching for something to go along with this post I found a website called The Lilypad Cottage

This is a strange song, but it is catchy and now it will be in my head all day! The lily pads are beautiful!

I always am in wonderment with those lily pads and how they survive...without being all pruned up for being in water all the time! The flowers area always dazzling.

Sandra said...

they are beautiful, i can't decide which i like best, the first or the last, great shots. and where oh where is the frog prince that should be on one of the pads....

Sandee said...

The video just started playing and scared the stuffing out of me. Yikes.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. ☺

Grace said...

And where are the frogs? Aren't lily pads supposed to have frogs? And princes? those look like lotus flowers, so maybe a buddha or 2?

This bring back my childhood memories. Did you know the stem that hold the lily is editable? And the leaves are for cooking use too.

So peaceful. Makes me want to sit and watch water being just water! :)

Interesting song... Quite different!!! I do love lily pads though.. We see them at Biltmore---which reminds me that it's time to go back over there.

Hugs,
Betsy

PS...I know I was here earlier, and I see a typo in my comment...should be ARE instead of area.

But, I thought of you as I checked my email just now and how you like to embroidery...maybe for your craft show next month?

I hope this link works.

Sorry, but that auto-play video really freaked me out. For I didn't know if my computer had been hijacked or what was going on until I finally found it.

Marg said...

I am with Sandee, the video started playing and I thought I was in the wrong place. Too funny. Good ole lily pads. They are terrific. Take care.

Donna said...

Oh, I really like that last photo! I hope that Mister Duke wasn't testing out the waters.
