Lily lake.

Near the Amana Colonies, about 90 miles east of Des Moines, Iowa, I saw a sight I have never seen in Texas, a lake of lilies.  Not a pond.  A lake.  170 acres of lilies.  Thanks to abundant rains this year, these lilies are still thriving, considerably more than you might expect in summer heat. 

Please let us know what you think about what we see.
