Water Lilies

Water Lilies
 

This peaceful scene is one of the delights of visiting the world-famous Butchart Gardens of Victoria, British Columbia. It felt just wonderful relaxing next to the pond! Water lilies float on the surface of the pond, but send their roots down to the mud at the bottom. The floating leaves help to dampen the wave action, keeping the water calm. Unlike other plants, water lilies have their stomata located on the topside of their leaves, to be next to the air.
