Purple waterlily

There's only time tonight to share this pic of a new waterlily; it had already closed for the day when I got in from work, so I'm not so sure what it really looks like. So far it seems similar to the purple and yellow one I had last summer, but the flowers are much smaller. What's really fantastic about this lily is the leaves - they're large and splotched with purple. I'll have to work on a better pic to share that includes the lilypads and maybe a sunbathing frog.

That's special - no need to work on more photos. I have only yellow/white lilies on the pads. I prefer blues/purples.

This is an exquisite Water lily. Purple is very rare in nature.

That flower is beautiful--even without a sunbathing frog.
