Water Lilies

I spent the day painting water lilies Wednesday. My friend M has a pond covered with beautiful lilies. Breathtaking!

The remains of an old dock

I spotted several types of mushrooms on the path down to the water.

Little bright orange mushrooms

I think this is a beefsteak mushroom

We were also treated to a lovely lunch al fresco!
Spicy shrimp, fruit and vegetables, vichyssoise, Parmesan toast, served with delicious Bloody Mary's. And chocolate eclairs!

Flowers picked fresh from the garden

It was a perfect day.
