Flowers at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens

As promised in my original post about our trip to Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens, here are the flower photographs. This first image (above) is likely a wild rose. They were growing abundantly throughout the nature trail.

Most of the irises at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens were bright yellow, like the one pictured below but the white and yellow variegated iris above caught my eye. The yellow irises were growing in large clumps all over the aquatic gardens and you could see them here and there along the nature trail.

 You can see some more yellow irises in the first of the goose family photos posted here.

White water lilies abounded in the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. According to a park flyer the more exotic water lilies will start blooming next month followed by the lotus blooms. Which of the flower photos did you like best? Have you ever been to an aquatic garden?

May God bless you!
