I always imagined that water lilies only grew in far off places that I didn't know the name of, even after finding out that they could be found right here where I live. I still don't quite believe I saw these. And yes I said these! Take a look just to the right of the big one in the picture. There's a little tiny one right beside it!
When I first saw these water lilies I knew exactly what they were.I usually have to do a lot of research to find the identity of flowers. Like I said, they're not my usual thing. But look at them! They appear to be glowing as if they give off their own light! It was those glowing lights on the water that I saw first.
Lily pads are also one of my favorites. The first place I ever saw them was in cartoons. There would always be a big bullfrog sitting on one. There were no bullfrogs here, but I am just glad to have been able to see the lily pads. To me these are fun fun fun!
I stood there for a long time looking at these water lilies, but it eventually became time to move on. There were three big families of geese that were just begging for my attention. I never ignore geese. And they had a bunch of big adolescents with them. Those big older goose children are fascinating with their not quite adult look that they have.
I'm glad I have all of these things to look at right now, because it seems that the internet just isn't cooperating with me very much. I haven't been able to do much the last few days because web pages don't want to load for me right now. I'm sure my service provider is working on it, but I wish they would hurry up. I'll keep on trying though. I always keep on trying.
We have something new for you today at Nature Center Magazine. Copas has decided to try something different. The next state he is writing about is taking him quite a bit longer than expected so he is bringing you a new idea, a new feature called Nature Fun Facts.
