Flowering Rush for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

The Flowering Rush or Butomus umbellatus is now flowering in our pond.   This is one of two plants we have in the pond.  The other one has a bud on it but has not yet opened.  I think it is very pretty. 

Straight out of the Camera Sunday is hosted by Jan at Murrieta365.com.   Take a picture but do not edit it.  You can crop it but that is all.  Post it to your blog and then link it to Jan's site.   It is fun and it is easy.  See you there.   Valerie

Great flower! We have a bud almost ready to burst in our patio pond and it didn't flower last year at all. I don't know what it is going to look like- hopefully it will be similar to this.
