It was a beautiful day to return to the lily pond at Tregaron. Last year I painted there through spring and summer. I'd planned to go there earlier in September, but the Conservancy's website announced that a tree had fallen (a BIG tree) across the lily pond. Today no sign of the damage could be seen.
The plants I was painting are called pickerel rush. They have purple spiky flowers in summer, but those flowers were gone and the leaves were turning yellow. Goldfish were swimming around the roots and I caught them and the reflections in the pond water.
