There is a place called Momence Wetlands east of my town that includes both sides of the state line, IL/IN, that I like to go to just to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet nature provides. This particular section has a huge section of lilypads that thrive here and double in size every year. The pic I took is about a month old now and they are still blooming to this day. This lilypad 'field' is about the size of a football field but a lil wider. This whole area was actually land long time ago but a log jam on the IL side of the Kankakee River made the river flood over it. Will be adding pics of the lilypads as ppl respond. I had to take several and still couldn't get the whole lilypad field. It's beautiful thou.

You are right. They are beautiful. They look gorgeous. I am a lover of nature and I always appreciate pictures of plants, animals, waters, anything which involves nature. You must have a good collection of photos. Thank you for sharing this one with us. so far, the lilies are out of reach in my place.
