  2. Incredible beauty. Such a cool and soothing image. I have this deep desire to peek over the edge of the petals to see who is curled up inside.

  11. Ces my dear,
    Monet took some poetic licence painting blue water lilies. I took in excess of 400 photos at Giverny in his garden and he certainly had no blue ones, They only grow in the tropics. Have you seen some of his late ones that cover a whole wall?
