Pink Lilies at Lepakshi

A little away from the Nandi in Lepakshi we discovered a small muddy pool. The pool lacked maintenance and all sorts of rubbish were strewn around it. It seemed to be crying for attention and care. I wish the Andhra Pradesh tourism did its part for the little pool.

The only pleasant sight was the pink lilies blooming in that pool. The lilies seemed to win the struggle of growing through clogged muddy water and reaching the sunshine and pure air above. Unstained and undeterred, they seemed determined to spread their fragrance and beauty all around. Isn’t that a message for us?

    Sorry to hear about the lack of care, but that lily is gorgeous!

  5. Beautiful indeed. I love water lilies and grow lots of them in pots. They like bad mud and grow through them. They are easier to grow from seed as well. Happy gardening.
