|Hope you enjoy seeing all of the water lilies and lily pads today.|
For my Birthday Trip this year, George and I went to Blowing Rock, North Carolina for a few days. SO--on the day we traveled there, we of course had to stop at Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina, to see what was blooming in August...
SO--guess where we went first??? We had to check out the Italian Water Gardens --which are fantastic this time of year... This year may have been the prettiest we have ever seen it... WOW!!!
Today I'll show you photos I took of the water lilies and lily pads. I couldn't believe all of the amazing colors of the lily pads!!!!! Hope you enjoy the pictures. Be sure and click on them for enlargements.
|Lots of water lilies and beautiful lily pads!|
|I love the peachy/pink colors of this one.|
|I love the reflections in this one.|
|Don't know what these are --but they are so pretty!|
|You can tell how much I love reflections. But you can tell how much I love all of the different lily pads also.|
|This little beauty and the one below were mostly bloomed out when we were there, but we managed to get a few photos.|
|So gorgeous and so much to see!!|
|See the BEE???|
|In love with PINK!!!|
|Look carefully at the reflections in this one... What do you see????? It's a reflection of the Biltmore House nearby... Neat, huh?|
|Oh those amazing lily pads --and their colors!!!!!|
|The lighting on this one was pretty, don't you think?|
|Little yellow flowers and their reflections|
|More gorgeous colors of the lily pads!|
This last photo is NOT mine. It is one which popped up on Facebook this past week... I loved it --and since it was a Water Lily, I decided to include it today... The quote says it all --don't you think?!!!
Have a wonderful remainder of the week.
