Blue tropical waterlily
The blue waterlilies on our dam are huge, and still flowering as winter approaches. They only take about eight weeks off in late winter, with big buds emerging again in mid-spring. Enjoy this gorgeous blue flower!
This post is part of the Daily Post weekly challenge …. find out more http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/05/14/weekly-photo-challenge-blue/ and join in the fun!
Here are blue hydrangeas, parisian sky, kite, lake reflections, lavender, lake and sky, thomas the blue train, blue sock, leaves and sky, butterfly, blue blender drink, blue skies, blue lights, blue arctic, greek cupolas, easter eggs , electric blue, flowers, walls, experiments!, drag car, angel, sinai peninsular, jo’s choice, and a blue footed goody.
These are my favourite images of light, taken late in the afternoon when the sun was almost set. I think the low angle of the light created these interesting deflections in the reflected images of the stems and leaves.

This topic is fun, it was so enjoyable to browse through the photo library and look for colour! I found flowers to please your senses, from the lily pond, and from the garden.
