Spatterdock II

Spatterdock is a wild waterlily that grows in the ponds around Connecticut. The flowers look like simple yellow knobs thrusting out of the water on thick fleshy stems. Their leaves are wide and look like perfect perches for frogs, though you'll never see one sitting on a lily pad.

"Spatterdock I" was stolen from the Washington Arts Association a couple of years ago. The Association is a good one, well-run, and their insurance paid for the loss.
