I always enjoy the leaves of water lilies as much as the flowers, and the leaves actually serve a very useful purpose, providing shade for those below and reduce the growth of algae.

A colourful note: red violet made its Crayola appearance in 1930, a busy year at the crayon company, including design changes as well as colour additions and removals. Red violet was a clearly new colour, sitting nicely between the two named colour groups, and they added blue violet too.
