I am being wooed by a waterlily.
Up until now, I had never given much thought to having a water garden. I have a fairly straightforward backyard, not at all sloping and mysterious, which is what I associate with water elements. But what if?
When I saw this single bloom in a beautiful pond (part of an open-air shopping center in Florida), I started to wonder. I have dappled light. I have humid Summers. What if I could tuck a water element in somewhere? I know that my location rules out the possibility of keeping Koi fish, but I could swing just about everything else. Hmmmm.
My mind keeps coming back to the Monet-like reflections of this simple pond. I am being wooed.
