Water Lily Love


Another favorite spot at Longwood are the water lily gardens. Like moths to a flame, the dragonflies come here in droves. Darting in and out amongst the brightly colored flowers like magical little creatures from a fairy realm.

The flower petals look like the have peacock feathers painted on them!
