When you think of the plants that grow in Texas, waterlilies are probably not the first ones that pop into your mind. The reality is that in San Angelo, Texas, there is a beautiful waterlily garden that houses plants from all over the world. The garden is absolutely stunning and free for all guests who wish to explore this cool, hidden treasure.\nThe collection has just a very small number of how many actual species of waterlilies there are, but it is still overflowing with them! To keep things interesting, every year new species are put on display so the chances of you seeing the same blooming plants twice are very slim.\nView this post on Instagram I went for a walk this morning at the International Waterlily Collection and it was beautiful. I can’t wait to go back when the rest of the lilies bloom.

The plants are grown by one man named Kenneth Landon, and according to the website, he built the enter display all by himself to include the walkways, fences, and pools. The garden sets out to preserve species that might be going extinct. The garden brings waterlilies that you won't be able to find anywhere else to the states, including one all the way from Egypt!\nView this post on Instagram Can’t wait for the waterlilys to be on display again. #photography #camera #photo #photolovers #nikon #nikonD5500 #waterlily #nikonphotography #nikonphoto #nikongallery #shutterbug #instashot #Fotografía #nature #macro #macrophotography #texas #lily #texas #waterlily #flowers #lilypad #outdoors A post shared by Rosanna (@photos_by_rosanna) on Feb 26, 2019 at 6:00am PST\nThe garden is open 24 hours and is open free of charge to the public.
