Field of Lily Pads: Stevenson, Alabama: July 13, 2012


A field of lily pads on Mud Creek.Field of Lily Pads

Picture of the mass of huge lily pads that grow in Mud Creek off the boat dock at the park.  They always grow up tall during the Spring when it rains a lot & the water is high; then in the Summer when the rain dries up & the water recedes the are left hanging out to die off.  They are really pretty when they’re flowering.

Taken with my Nikon.

This is a historical cabin & old wheel of some sort in the city park.  I wish I could remember their significance, but alas I do not & naturally there is nothing online about them.
