First Bloom of the year!

The water lily has shown it's first bloom of the season. This picture was taken earlier this morning before the sun had been shining for very long.
Now here is it in all of its beauty. I have no idea what type it is, but it has already taken off this season. I am looking for a miniature version to put in a whiskey barrel. Any suggestions?


  1. Oh how pretty! I love water lilies.
    Mine have just started to leaf out and float on top of the water, I have a little bit of wait for any blooms!
    I like to get my water plants from Lily Blooms, they have all differnt sizes there. Check it out, I think they even have some for container water gardens :) Even if you don't order from there, I think you can get ideas.


  2. That is amazing! I have never seen anything change like that!!! And it is so beautiful!

  3. Lovely - I want a water garden someday. :)

  4. they are beautiful!!! I have your patterns and will mail them off on Friday...:)
