Found this wonderful surprise / gift from nature in the pond a couple of days ago and it'is even more beautiful than the first one that bloomed a couple of weeks ago. I planted this lily last year and frankly, couldn't even remember what color it was supposed to be. Several new leaves emerging as well, whose shade the goldfish are really enjoying, because temps have climbed into the 90's in San Marcos, Texas, in the last few days. Yikes! I think the shade sails will have to go up again very soon.
