Green Parasol

When I saw this plant, I couldn't resist snapping a photo.   This lucky flower not only had a parasol, it had its feet in the water.  Usually when we think of flowers, the leaves are overshadowed by delicate and/or elaborate blooms.  However, in this case, it was the complete opposite.

"And it is summer, glorious, deep-toned summer, the very crown of nature's changing year when all her surging life is at its full."  from Summer by Amy Lowell (1912)
