Thursday’s Special: Blooming water
I had never taken pictures of lily pads until this summer. Then all of a sudden a few opportunities presented themselves; first I found some nice water lilies in Italy on the shores of Lake Como; then there was a gigantic one in our botanical garden in Zagreb that unfortunately I could not photograph as it was enclosed in a greenhouse with insanely high tropical temperatures, and I had to make a choice between taking a pic and possibly fainting, or just leaving it be. I decided to pass on that photo opportunity as there were a couple of other geeks standing in the way between me and the lily, so in the end it was not that hard decision to make 😀 . After that I went for a tour of some of our local castles and there they were … two beautiful pink lilies floating in a pond next to Lužnica manor that reminded me of the ones I saw in Jeff’s pictures.
