Yellow Stuff

Well, it continues to be a wet year here in the Chicagoland area. We were swamped last night again and more on the way tonight. At least I don't have to water my newly planted annuals. I've been wearing my wow-that's-yellow raincoat a lot lately.

Speaking of water, on a recent trip to North Carolina, I snapped this photo of a water lily. They're considered a perennial freshwater herb. The leaves and flowers of the water lily float on the surface of water, but the rhizomes are rooted in soil below the water's surface. All water lilies have a singular bloom. And yes, they have a bit of yellow at the center.
