We got some new pond plants and my favorite so far is a rain lily (Zephyranthes flavissima). Lovely bright yellow flowers that keep coming back.
Another water iris has bloomed and the color is so intense and gorgeous that I’ve decided it’s madness to try to decide which is most beautiful. This is just as it’s finishing opening. The deep purple contrasted with the yellow pollen and chartreuse leaves is simply stunning. And as you can see, there are several more waiting to bloom!
Perhaps I spoke hastily. I recently declared that I had the world’s most beautiful iris in my yard. But then this one bloomed in my pond (it’s a water iris). It is very lovely and this is the first year it has bloomed.
I wish in this shot the depth of field focus was better, because I didn’t even realize the damselfly was there until I looked at the photo later. I was so focused on admiring the flower!
My apologies for the unexpected delay since my last post. If I’d known I wasn’t going to post for a bit I’d’ve said something. But it was nothing more than work and life and in the meantime I’ve been taking photos and have gotten a few good ones to share with you. I’m even going to share some not good ones just because it’s fun. In any case, today is a seven lily day! Enjoy.
A pair of yellow water lilies came up next to each other, and I decided to capture them through the day as they opened up. I hope you enjoy it!
