Water lily

The most beautiful pink water lily flowers appeared in my small pond last summer. The water lilies appeared between the  other pond plants such as the lotus (with their umbrella-like leaves) and reeds ( seen in the  blue pot to the right). The water lily blooms closed up each evening and opened in the mornings.  When I had Muscovy ducks in my property earlier this year, I had to keep them from eating the blooms as the ducks seemed to love them. The water lilies had only a faint scent but the most pure pink colour with yellow stamens.
