If it weren't for the blemishes on the leaves this beautiful flower would not look real- but she is.
Our water lily lake is smothered with pink flowers at the moment and will be for quite a few months to come, until the water cools down towards the end of Autumn.
The frogs certainly appreciate the habitat around and on the water lily leaves. Their calls of a summer evening can be deafening. Loud enough to really hurt your ear drums! It sounds unbelievable but it is true.
