Leedra, I enjoyed seeing the progression. How long does it bloom??? Did you keep going back to check--or did you use the different stages from several different lilies??? Very interesting. I think I like the 2nd picture the best--mainly because of the colors.
Hugs,
Betsy

Leedra said...

I am sorry, I was not clear. These are different flowers at different stages. They do open and close daily from what I understood while there.

WONDERFUL waterlily photos, Leedra! And thank you for your kind words, and prayers. We;ll be in the "upper room" for a while yet, and things are working out pretty well. Yes, it is so good to be with my hubby every day again! I'm sorry you and yours are not together every day, and hope that will work out better for you both as well. It's hard. Mainly mine needs a better job and I need A job! :-) But God has been good to us, and I am grateful that things are slowly moving in the right direction....will be praying for you too!
