The pond in question is at Mapleton and, perhaps, the pond was not so golden on the day we were there. But the lilies put on quite a show.
There are two ponds on either side of the road and one is quite choked with lilies. This photo shows 3 of the different colours growing there and somewhere hiding under a leaf is a water hen which ducked just as I clicked the shutter.
The pond on this side had more water and a few ducks as well. We promised ourselves we would go back on a nicer day to have a good look around. I believe there is a nice walk to a waterfall nearby as well.
I love the colour of these pale pink water lilies in the watery pond. There's also some tiny white ones there dotted around.The yellow lilies are beautiful as well.
Here's the only purple lily I could see that day, and that shy water hen.
