Water Lilies

Water Lilies, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

This was going to end the week of flowers, because, as I keep saying, I'm not a big fan of flower shots. They're a bit banal. That said, as you should have figured out by now, I was a Longwood Gardens last weekend and they happen to have quite a few ... wait for it ... flowers. So I have a ton of flower shots saved on my computer. You'll just have to put up with them for another day or two.

These, water lilies are from the water lily garden at Longwood Gardens. I had never seen a garden dedicated specifically to water lilies before, but it was pretty cool. They dye the water black to get rid of a certain kind of bacteria, but also to make the flowers stand out more. It works.
