Resplendent Waterlily

Fall is slowly creeping into our lives and perhaps, more than creeping in, at the higher altitudes. I believe I saw a snowfall on the Weather Channel this week. I wanted to close the week with this resplendent Waterlily bloom I captured while walking around the Waterlily Gardens at Gibbs Gardens a few weeks ago. I have been decorating for Fall, adding touches here and there, throughout my place in an attempt to bring the outdoors of Fall indoors. Are you knee deep in faux pumpkins and splashy wreaths adorned with Fall leaves and stalks of corn. On another note, I hope you are enjoying the cooler temps. While we have had a few hot days this week in the 90's with some humidity, we have not had stifling days like we did back in July and August. Just that slight difference in temps is a big help. Wherever you are this weekend I hope it finds you dreaming of Fall! ENJOY!


  1. That is a gorgeous color on the waterlily! I actually saw lily pads (no flowers) on a pond near my house when I walked today. It's fall here at high altitude. I don't do much decorating, because fall just doesn't hang around too long. Already leaves are dropping and there is snow on the high peaks. Have a good weekend, Carol. Hope you have some cooling breezes.

  2. Wow - that is breath-taking!
