  1. Oh, I can't believe you have a water bloom already! My water plants are just beginning to get their stems above the water. What a pretty color yours is. I love it when the water is filled with flowers.

  8. Uuh that it so beautiful it takes my breath away. That would be so nice as painting in my wall, I really love it.
    Sometimes it so hard even understand the beauty of the nature and this is one of them, it almost hurts to heart:)

  10. Rick, I know! It's crazy, right? This is my first spring to have the water lily. I put the stock tank together last July so didn't really know what to expect. It has been a great performer. It last bloomed in December and now early blooming in March!

    Henrietta I know exactly what you mean. Nature's exquisite detail and beauty is sometimes incomprehensible and squeezes the heart.

    @Annelie, thanks, me too!

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
