Flower Friday – Not just another water lily!

This photo of a water lily has long been one of my absolute favorites. It was photographed in a stunning glass house called the Conservatory of Flowers at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. What particularly draws my interest is the soft geometry of nature, resting against a rigid backdrop of man-made geometrical rectangles in the reflection of the glasshouse windows. A lovely start to spring for all my fellow Aussies, have a great weekend everyone! (and completely in denial that summer is ending here in the USA).

  2. We have 19 more days of summer, so let’s enjoy them to the fullest! I love autumn as much anyone, and I’ll welcome it with open arms (and closed-down apertures), but meanwhile I’m content not to rush things. I do applaud you offering for the folks down there (and in some other places) who greet it sooner than we do. And,yes, a lovely lily, Laura!
