White water lillys...

Not long after we first moved to Shetland I remember driving out west and passing a pool flowering with white water lillys so reminiscent of the lotus blossom...


I'd not passed by that place since with a camera to hand and the lillys in flower...


They really a beautiful flowers and rare natives to Shetland...


These are in a pool near the roadside, but I did notice more in the distance...


They were hard to take snaps of on a foggy breezy day, but well worth the pause in my drive...


Beautiful flowers rising from the mud and hidden amongst the general noise of life...


I'd like to say I took the chance to sit for a while, but tempting as it was the office was calling...
