Flower Power...A Round Robin Promotion

"When you have only two pennies in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other."

-Chinese proverb

I am looking forward to our next Round Robin Challenge, Renee has chosen, "Flower Power" as the theme this time around, and I have been considering the possibilities ever since I found that out. I became especially inspired by the exotic flowers I saw at the Conservatory of Flowers last week. There were so many different flowers, it was difficult to take it all in. Although, creature of habit that I am, I was of course drawn to the Aquatic exhibit, specifically to see the water lilies. So lovely. This is only one of the water lily photos I took, so I will be sharing some more soon. When you have "Monet" as any part of your screen name, it's a sure bet that water lilies would be one of your favorite flowers. So beautiful.

Water Lilies

By Sara Teasdale

If you had forgotten water lilies floating
On a dark, lake among mountains in the afternoon shade
If you have forgotten their wet, sleepy fragrance
Then you can return and not be afraid.

As water lily shots go, this one is very different. You can really see them as individual flowers, sticking up like that. I like it! (And I'm going to bed now.)
