Water lilies


By Kate123

Water lilies  (Nymphaea odorata (Water lily))

Two of the water lilies have finally opened this week! Another bud is ready to pop! At last!!
Happy with the pale pink colour fading to white.
Previously we had a deep pink one, it's nice to have a change.

Our pool is completely covered by lily leaves and only a few flowers...

We've had a small waterlily plant for several years now and never a flower has been seen.

Very pretty. One of mine flowers, the other not yet.

Hi ladies, think they do seem to be hit and miss..
I’m not sure exactly how big all your ponds are, but mine is pretty small really. I’d add some other pond plants, but, I think I wouldn’t be able to see the goldfish.
