Another flower surprise !

This afternoon as I headed out the door to meet a friend for lunch, I stopped to check out the baby fish in the large container pond in our back yard. An aquarium customer of my husband's (who has a large koi pond) gave him a water lily plant at the beginning of the summer, and to my surprise there was a beautiful bloom there today!


Gregg hadn't noticed it when he fed the fish this morning. I texted him this picture and he was surprised. Somehow in his pre-work hurry he had missed it.

  2. I used to have a fish pond here (don't ask), and it would surprise us in exactly the same way. Fabulous flowers.

  3. Maybe the bloom wasn't open yet when Gregg fed the fish? It's beautiful!

    1. I think that might have been the case. He's too observant to miss something so pretty!

    1. I had a thyroid check a couple of years ago. I'm happy to report that this week I'm feeling much better.

  6. That's beautiful. We had a peony poppy suddenly appear yesterday in the herb garden. I pointed it out to Paul and as I touched it the flower completely disintegrated and all the petals fell off!
