It’s time to settle some things about YOU once and for all. Are you ready to get down and dirty?…

Without the dirt and water, there is no place to take root.

However, when mixed together, dirt and water make MUD.

A lot of MUD…


But does it have to be DIRTY?

It’s only dirty if you lie about it…

Today’s date is going to take you underneath the surface. Underneath the lily pad is a whole lot of dark and mud.

But did you know? (Per The Life Of A Lily Pad

“Water lilies, however, have their own dark side. Indeed, when a non-native water lily is introduced into a body of freshwater, it may grow excessively, overcrowding and choking out animals and other plants.

Of course, in their native habitats, water lilies make for wonderful scenery. But while water lilies are perennial, a single plant surviving for several years rooted in the mud, in keeping with the seasons, the life of the lily pad itself is fleeting. By late summer, the majority of lily pads have begun to decay, their vivid green fading to yellow and brown, their parts detaching and disappearing into the water. The water lily falls dormant. It will not be awakened again until next spring, when a new generation of lily pads will emerge.”
