this is a tropical waterlily with a lovely perfume especially for the evenings in the garden. The flowers stand proud.
this is a hardy waterlily
Wishing everyone a fabulous new year - the very best of health, happiness and extra loads of creativity. These wishes also come from my 2 new waterlilies - one happily in new pot, other one in bucket waiting but both happy already. I have removed the water clover to a minor spot since it is not a waterlily and is never going to flower and fed my other waterlily 3 big tablets as it hasn't flowered. I really only went to get 1 waterlily but it was a long drive up the freeway with hundreds of crazy drivers in a hurry to wherever (the grave yard?) so I bought 2 and a bag of tablets for them to eat.
Have a wonderful night - we are staying at home, indulging in our favourite scallop dish and a chicken tandoor on our bbq and champagne. Maybe stay up to midnight - maybe not.
See you in 2010
