I saw some of the most beautiful water lilies yesterday at the Denver Botanical Gardens. I was struck by the most beautiful symmetry and striking colors that these wonderful water plants and their blooms produce.
There were all kinds of colors: pinks, purples, oranges, yellows of these water lilies. Flowers are such a beautiful and important part of the plant’s ability to survive from one season to the next. Without the flower the plant cannot be pollinated to reproduce and perpetuate the next generation of plants.
It offers sweet nectar to bees and butterflies and other insects that are uniquely drawn to the flower and that carrier brings pollen from the flower to another enabling its reproduction.
