Why are you reporting this puzzle?
This is a lily bud from our back yard pond. In past years the lilies have only appeared one or two at a time every couple of days or less often. This year we have been having a bumper crop. There are multiple lilies every day. Typically, we are seeing about seven or more at a time. Eleven is highest in one day. This bud had been in heavy shade and has not opened yet. The suns first rays are just starting to land on it and awaken it so that it will open.
