Photo: Lily pads

Lily pads float on the surface of a pond.

This was taken at the Winkler Botanical Preserve, a name I only remembered because I associated it with Henry Winkler from Happy Days!

It’s one of those places where you have to be local to know where it is, and even if you’re local you might not even know it’s there.  It’s not in any of the tour books–in fact, I drove by it for years and never knew it was there.  I discovered it when I picked up a book on waterfalls and the writer mentioned it.

Wait?  What?  There’s a waterfall down the street? (It was turned off when I went.)

The preserve is located at the end of an apartment parking lot.  Every single time I go there, I overshoot the left turn and have to come back down.  It’s really not obvious.

Anyway, check out more pictures here.

    Pretty. I used to have a home in the country with a big pond; we had water lilies and lotus and goldfish, which grew really big, though we often didn’t see them until a heron or a kingfisher got one.

    Thanks for sharing. My mother used to take us to various parks, including Cherokee Park (Wisconsin), where we’d go rock hopping.

      I’ll have to ask my uncle if he’s been there. I was just in Wisconsin this weekend (not thanks to American Airlines!).
