A Gorgeous Water Lily

I visited the local arboretum again to see if anything new was blooming.

In the water garden I found the most amazing color of water lilies.  The one I'm sharing today was a beautiful shade of....I guess you would call lavender.  It was not dark enough to be called purple and yet it was a tad lighter even than lavender and depending on the angle and light, some may even call it blue..

Anyway it was fabulous and I tried to capture the beauty of it.

The colors and shading in the center of the flower are amazing, especially in the close-up. That is a lovely lavender, some people in the nursery business do call that and even magenta blue, out of desperation.
Stunning, breathtaking pictures, Felicia! :)
