Water Lily leaves and their flowers are a common feature of ponds and lakes in the UK. The leaves may be green, but sometimes they are purplish-red. The water may be brown, as in this image. But sometimes it is clear, revealing the stems deep in the water; and on other occasions the water reflects the sky. In short, no two findings are ever the same. And that is what I find so appealing.
The plants create their own compositions, and I now have a growing number of images collected over the years of these adornments of still water. This example comes from Hever Castle on our most recent visit. You will find other images here and here and here.
