Victoria Amazonica...WaterLily Queen

The Regal Victorias of The San Angelo
International Water Lily Collection, are the Crowning Glory of the collection of LovelyLilyLadiesInWaiting.

The giant water platter Victoria has captured the imagination of the world from the very first glimpse of it in its wild South American home in l801. Named for Queen Victoria, it was nearly 50 years later that it was first brought to bloom in "captivity" in England, inspiring a wave of enthusiasm for its size and the beauty of its flowers.

A Point of Interest in San Angelo????? YouBetcha!!!! Thanks to '65er Janie White Michilak for the suggestion.

SuKnitWitty strolled through the LilyPond...HPBrownie in Hand...
Thinking before I got there....
"Oh! I'll take a few shots to give the '65erReunioner's a Preview".
TwoFullScanDisks, TwoDeadBatteries, and TwoHours later I reluctantly left.
Enjoy the LilyPond Tour via SuKnitWitty's 'SmokinHPBrownie'!
