I'm so looking forward to seeing your pond this year,, Your pond thread is One I look forward to every spring/summer of each year since you've built it

This was the view from our deck yesterday in between severe thunderstorms. The water lilies seem to be loving this weather - lots of blooms so far this year!
Here she is blooming yesterday. The picture doesn't do her justice - it's hard to get a picture while the flowers bob in the water, and my photo editing program quit on me. The photo makes her look a bit faded - she's much more vibrant than appears here.
I saw 4 more buds on the surface when I got home yesterday evening.
