There was a nice reflection of the water lily and the surrounding foliage, if a bit far out into the pond.
Looking more like an accident than a plan, I had to look closer when I spotted a lone hibiscus rising above the crowd in this border of Impatiens and Salvia.
The size and color combo were amazing.

This decorative garden statue is tucked in between a group of cypress at the edge of a pond at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Overgrown vegetation was recently cleared and hydrangeas planted.
This is the view from the other side of the pond.
Freshly dampened by the rain, this Magnolia Blossom was reaching for the sky.
And from a little different angle.
An early bloomer, this thistle was all done with it’s reproduction by the first of June.
And a look at this thistle’s flower in full bloom.
Hydrangea, Day Lilies and a gazebo were reflecting in a small pond on the grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
