Lily ponds

Harlow Carr Gardens has two lily ponds: one a formal, symmetrical rectangle and the other a small pool surrounding by decking, where children can study the pond life. Both beautiful in different ways and both currently full of water lilies, though they were barely out on such a cold, grey day. They need a little sunshine before they will fully show their beauty. 


  1. I like water lilies but growing them in such a confined, geometric space seems rather heartless.

  2. They are certainly a beautiful flower to arrive out of the muck of swampy water!

  3. The best place to enjoy water lilies is in the Volga river delta. They are so beautiful. Also the fresh caviar delicious in the fresh river breeze....
