Water lily bog A lovely moment in time from a day spent in the Pine Barrens one hot and sunny summer a few years ago. Looking out over a lily bog with pine forest behind. The predominant species in this bog was Nymphaea odorata, but I also saw the yellow lily, Nuphar variegatum. <br />

The Pine Barrens is a heavily forested area of coastal plain covering more than seven counties in New Jersey. <br />
