MORNING IN THE FLOATING GARDEN

in Petals4 months ago (edited)

There is a pond on the outskirts of Medulin, the small, tourism-oriented seaside town in which I live. The pond is pretty large and nothing similar can be found in this southern part of Istra that gravitates around the city of Pula. Ponds like this, along with some rivers can be found only from the city of Pazin northwards, sixty or more kilometers from here.

Today I walked about a hundred meters ...

... from my house to the aforementioned pond ...

... and I spent an hour with the beautiful flowers that grow in that water.

I don't know who threw the seeds or planted the rhizomes there ...

... but I'm pretty sure that they appeared a little more than a decade ago. My memory says so, and although that memory isn't impeccable, I tend to believe her in this case.

Nymphaea alba it's an aquatic flowering plant native to North Africa, Europe, and the temperate & tropical regions of Asia.

The leaves are pretty large, up to thirty centimeters in diameter ...

... and a multitude of leaves usually creates a solid carpet in the shallows. That cover made of leaves provides shade and shelter for many aquatic and semi-aquatic creatures.

These Waterlillies definitely made the habitat richer and more interesting.

Later, in Summer, a month or two from now ...

... when some of the water evaporates ...

... I'll be able to walk through the mud and photograph the insects and other small animals that congregate on the leaves & flowers.

Nymphaea alba has a long history in traditional herbal medicine.

The plant contains the active alkaloids nupharine and nymphaeine and can be used as a sedative. The petals and other flower parts are the most potent source of the aforementioned compounds.

And that's it for today.

I love this ... water lilies are so gorgeous ... and I expect that you are just the type of person that the ducks and geese feel are good company!

The water lilies are beautiful, and the scene talking to the birds is very sweet. They must have told you something interesting 🙂

I could take photos there forever… so many flowers… and all the water lily leaves… must be loads of wildlife be there too I can imagine.
Beautiful captures of the flowers @borjan 😁

So lovely, and just the distance from my house to my barn away! It must be nice to have something so pretty so close.

Yes, it's a good place to have at hand. As a kid, I spent tons of my free time there. It was very different then, but no less interesting.

Las flores están bellas, cabe la menor duda, lo qui se debe haber es zancudos.....

Sí. Muchos mosquitos viven y se reproducen allí.

Si me lo imagine.saludos amigo @borjan.

the last photo is very funny, as if you are talking about something important with a group of ducks by the pond😆😆😆😆

Quite beautiful lotus, pure white, let people settle down.

Wow! A lot of beautiful water Lily. All those are looks really amazing. Water Lily is our national flower. It's available in our country a lot.

Wow 🥰
@borjan
This is so so beautiful 😍
I really love your contents...
Keep engaging, nice 👍 job 👍

Does the government there who maintains the park pay salaries to people who want to clean up those beautiful gardens?

I like this kind of big white flowers in lake, there are species that have huge leaves that can hold a human. nice shots

@themarkymark looks like a nice guy to me ... yet it seems that so many dudes consider him as an enemy. What's going on here.
