43 water lily pads visible this morning. 44 this evening. Last night, when visibility was better, I could see lots of newly planted lilies under the water – making their way toward the surface. Soon.
In another week, when it looks as if all of the lilies planted this year have shown themselves – I’ll make a final 2014 purchase, planting them where there aren’t any.
Also, last night in the early evening, there were 3-4 small schools of fish, in the shallows, working through the lily pads, just a few inches over the bottom. Caught in the last of the sunlight. Beautiful.
