Water Lilies

This weekend I visited a local water lily exhibit for some much-needed zen time after a hectic work week. I've always thought of water lilies as summer flowers, so it was a surprise to find out they are in bloom this time of year.

The garden had a mix of tropical and native lilies. The taller ones are tropical, and the native lilies sit lower in the water.

The person who designed the garden area liked Monet's water lily garden so much that he built a replica of the famous green bridge.

I struggled to get a decent picture of the bridge. The light kept changing on me, and the reflections on the water and lily pads were a challenge. Not the best photos, but the bridge is pretty cool.

There were also a lot of these tall purple plants growing in the water, so I'm assuming they are some variation of the tropical lilies.
