When I was a little girl, my dad promised to get me a lily pad. I remember him making the promise, but I don't recall the day he got me one. Mom and I were walking down the path at the botanical gardens when mom said 'Dad got your lily pad right there!' I was astounded to find out my dad 'stole' the lily pad, from the gardens!

interesting color scheme here. good detail. crop at bottom and right is a bit tight, the tilt to the left is somehow irritating.
