    Those are exquisite Ron! I did a silk painting of water lilies because I like them so much.

    The dark red one is very nice. Here in tx all dark red waterlilies burn in the sun and dont grow well.

    The red one gets a bit of shade from my gazebo. As I worked gardens I disposed of the rocks by building an under water wall. I filled in behind it and put a gazebo onto the peninsula, so that it is partially surrounded by water.
