My family is oddly connected. We all know people and most of us know amazing people who are experts in their field and who are just out and out awesome. My mother has a couple that she is friends with and has been for years. The gentleman of the couple Dave, works for Hugh's water gardens and grows Victoria lilies. For those of you that do not know. Victoria lilies are a water lily that have an amazingly large leaf. the structure is actually strong enough to support a little human.
Well We go and visit the garden every year when they lilies are in bloom. Here is an amazingly successful photo from last year!
