My hubby and I visited the Lilypons watergardens, a popular place for birding. Birding was my main reason for going there but seeing all these waterlilies and lotus flowers is just a stunning sight. If you are looking for pond supplies or waterlilies this is the place. They have many colors of both hardy and tropical waterlilies. Over 70 of 260 some acres are used for the waterlilies. It was hot Monday morning so it was a short visit. Some of the birds I saw were the Great Blue Heron, Egret, Canada Geese, Kingbird, Catbirds, Robins, Blackbirds, a Green Heron in flight and many Swallows. I have read that they offered a guided bird walk on their grounds, it is so nice to see a commercial business so inviting to birders. You can walk on your own on the trails or walkways between the large ponds.
I was amazed at the dragonflies, they were everywhere.
The lotus flowers are gorgeous.
I was also checking out all the butterflies and moths.
Redwing Blackbirds were plentiful and noisy.
I just love the color of the waterlily below, it was one of my favorites.
This cute little guy stared at us while we sat on one of the shaded benches.
