Water Lilies

Whenever I see water lilies I immediately think of Monet’s garden in Giverny; a place that is on my bucket list of places to visit.  There is just something about them that is so calming and peaceful.

These lovelies are around an office campus where swans and herons stay.  I get two photo opportunities in one when I go visit.

(It’s been a highly stressful few weeks and I don’t see it getting a lot more calmer for maybe a month or so; life can get that way sometimes.  I thought I had posted this before but perhaps I didn’t.  I hope I’m not repeating a post.  Anyway, these images are far nicer than the gloomy, rainy and cold day we are having today.)

  6. When I see lilies, I cannot help but think of humility and devotion. Also, a story in Greek mythology – Zeus wanted baby Hercules to drink the milk of Hera, his wife. Because Hercules was born of another woman, Hera disagreed. Zeus brought Hercules to Hera to drink her milk while she was sleeping, but she awoke and pushed him away. The drops of milk that were spilled on the ground grew into lilies.
