August 22nd – Water Lily

Our new water lily produced it’s first flower today, so I thought i’d share it with you. As normal I tried to find a weird and wacky fact …..

The bulb and root are used to make medicine. People take American white water lily by mouth for diarrhoea and apply it to the body for vaginal conditions, diseases of the throat and mouth, and for burns and boils, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. Don’t try at home ….
