I admire the lotus that grows on some of the ponds and lake branchlets in the area. I'd love to have some on our pond to create good cover for the fish, frogs and turtles, but I'm guessing it's pretty prolific and would overtake the place in no time. So I'll just keep admiring them from afar.
I'm not sure, but I think the blue flowers in the foreground might be blue-eyed grass. They're pretty, whatever they are.
