Hydrangea, Day Lilies and a gazebo were reflecting in a small pond on the grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
A single sun lit Calla Lily bloom with the Long White Bridge in the background.
I’ve seen various lilies showing off around Magnolia Plantation and Gardens this past week.
I don’t recall seeing this color arrangement before with alternating petals, but it sure is attractive.
This white lily had near perfect form, if messy pollen.
This Tree Frog found a shady spot to nap, with the sun shining down into the bloom providing a nice back light for my image.
Another view of Water Lilies with the green highlighted path, this time with the front Lily in focus.

Newly leafed out trees were reflecting color into the pond, creating a path around the lilies.

This Lily outshines the rather ratty looking leaves around it.

I was admiring a patch of Purple Iris when this busy bee caught my attention.
The bee’s yellow was a nice match for the Iris’s accent color.
Hovering to assess the situation, he seemed to have rather long hind legs.
He came back to this bloom several times.
Then, on to the next flower…

Taken with Ted’s Canon 70D, while my 7D was being repaired.
Dappled sunlight highlighted this Water Lily, tucked in the corner of the pond.

I was delighted to find Water Lilies in bloom last week at a roadside pond.
Most of the flowers were clustered around the edges but a narrow strip of lily pads and one lone Lily have reached out into the middle of the pond.
