Water Lily at the Farm
This is the first bloom of the year for my water lilies. The metal container they grow in, was made to be used in the pasture to water the cattle. I think it gives my flower garden a country look.
Friday Project Day at the farm is about to begin. Early this morning, before sunrise, I did a walk around to see what I would be working on. The entrance, to the new Secret Garden, was installed a couple of weeks ago. Now the real work of adding flowers and shrubs is about to begin.
I'm hoping these windows, recycled from the farmhouse, will give the look of a garden room. They will receive a coat of primer today.
Water lily blooms close up at the end of the each day. As the sun rises in the morning, the lily comes out of the water and opens up for another day. Each year they out do themselves.
I'm thinking this year will be no different....
Enjoy your Friday
