Sunlight sparkles across aqua blue water, diamonds of purple glitter the pond’s surface;
water lilies lift their faces toward the sky. Golden sunlight filters through the brambles and ferns, a touch of cardinal red peeks through purple and pink foliage while azure heavens reflect in the water. Placing the lilies in arcing patterns and staggering where they are floating about, adds to the flow and energy in the moment, and gives you the sense that they are gently dancing on water.
