Tony’s Pond: Waterlily Bud

tony's pond

After the flaxen river grass and the brown of the ploughed earth and the ochre-gold of the hay bales and the white and black of the crows and the gulls following in the wake of the machines, this is  a small wet area of Green. The weather has turned cold, so we are hoping for the best for this late lily.

  1. still looking very healthy in the vivid green, although getting colder we normally should get some longer mild weather. You presented rich colour range in one nice sentence too.

    • I’d been walking round the fields, and just took this picture when I got back, and it struck me how different it was from the others, though I didn’t notice this at first. I like the way that (accidentally) the two spikes of the iris just catch the lily bud between them.Good to hear from you, Doron. Keep up the good work with the painting and give us more to enjoy on your blog.
