These lilies are doing so well. I guess because their feet are in the pond so they are never starved for water -- unlike other parts of my garden.

Lilies always bring to my mind the scripture verse from Matthew 6 "consider the lilies of the field" the version from The Message gives a modern take on this passage.

Matthew 6:30-33 The Message (MSG)
“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
