Still Waters

Water lilies only grow where the water is still and quiet, because they are rooted in the soil under the pond with their leaves and flowers floating on the surface. This is one reason they are sometimes symbols of peace. I took this picture at a marina in Gananoque, Ontario, Canada. The boats may range up and down the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, but here in the marina things are safe and calm.
