With the nights a little cooler and the welcome rains we’ve had this month, the water lilies are beginning to slow down. I’ve noticed the colors are little darker and the blooms are smaller. These tropical lilies are getting ready for there winter nap. It is their time to rest. Over the next month or so, they will continue to produce smaller lily pads and slowly shrink down into their pots. The flower buds will get smaller and in the final days, some will not even open as just drift back under the water to sleep.
I’ll document this over the coming months for all to see as we wait for the arrival of spring next year and whole new round of glory.
