Victoria water lilies

September 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I made another trip to Kenilworth recently. One normally doesn't think to shoot flowers in August, when everything else seems to be drying out and withering in the heat. But August is when the Victoria water lilies bloom. The leaf of a Victoria water lily can grow up to almost 10 feet in diameter. They are wonderful to behold.

The following isn't actually a Victoria water lily, but rather a winter hardy water lily. I shot it when I shot the Victoria water lilies. I like the strong contrast of the single white flower against all the dark green.
