Feeling a little jangled today--- it calms me to gaze at this photo I took in Duluth (on an inlet of Lake Superior). I don't even want to learn to watercolor this sort of thing (I prefer ...chunkier subjects), but this practically is a watercolor, eh?

The Yellow Pond Lily is not technically a water lily, I guess. (This plant-naming stuff gets confusing.) It has many names, including Cow Lily; my favorite is Spatterdock.

Whatever you call these plants, they are rooted in the mud, rest on the water, and bloom skyward.

This is just what I needed to look at today. Water all around me on this island and how I wish some would just fall from the sky!

Thanks---I was pleased the camera caught the loveliness of the scene.
