Flower Of The Day #7 Water Lily

We live on the edge of the Cotswolds Water Park in England, an area where gravel pits and sand pits have been commercially “mined” but then carefully landscaped and in many cases transformed into lakes. Some have designated permitted uses, one for sailing, one for jet ski, one for kayaking and canoeing, …… Many are interspersed with streams, rivers and disused canals and this is where many wild swamp and water flowers can be found. Here’s one of my favourites, the simple Water Lily.

  1. Lovely images of one of nature’s loveliest flowers. Way back in the far blue yonder, a far-seeing developer in Phuket bought some useless land along the shore that had once been silver mines (Phuket was one great silver mine). It was cratered, pockmarked, and a blight on the landscape. Then, with a brilliant landscape artist and architect and some judicious planning, it was transformed into a series of lagoons (the craters) linked by canals which in turn linked 4 hotels eventually built on the site over a period of probably ten years. The water lilies in the smaller lakes/lagoons were amazing: the larger ones were used for wind-surfing.

  3. I’m going to have to check this part of the Cotswolds out! I have been to Chipping Campden, Broadway, Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the-Wold. Moreton-on-Marsh, and the Stanway House in Tewkesbury. I have been north of you!
