water lily pads

water lily pads

Suan Luang Rama IX, Bangkok

The sight of water lily pads never fail to conjure up silly images in my mind.

I would let my imagination run wild and visualise that water lily pads are the favourite hangout of frogs. They would sit cross-legged on deckchairs, arms folded behind their heads with a contented smile on their faces, clearly enjoying the warm sun on their moist skins. Concerts are held after rain showers, where a band of frogs can be seen jamming on the pads, belting out tunes at their croaky best, much to the delight of the pond denizens.

A lotus bud, with a tinge of pink at its tip, sits lovingly atop its delicate green stem.

Don’t you love the sight of water splashing onto lotus leaves? And how the water never seem to stay put but slides effortlessly off the waxy, water-resistant leaf surface?
