Red Tiger Lotus?

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

yup prob a red tiger lotus.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

I also think dwarf lily, the leaves are too small for a tiger lotus.

Tiger lotus will routinely put off 2-3 12 inch leaves before it sends out runners to the top, the dwarf lily makes a higher quantity of 4-6 inch leaves instead.

You can also tell by the lily pad, if the pad has serrated edges that slightly tilt up from the water at the points of the serrations, it's a tiger lotus, if the lily pads are round, its a dwarf lily.

In my experience anyways, I have 2 tiger lotus (1 green, 1 red) and 4 dwarf lilies.
