Four women in conical hats wash pink water lilies in a flooded field of Long An Province in southern Vietnam.

Water lilies are used for decoration and making tea in east and southeast Asia. Their stalks can be eaten raw with fermented paste or braised sauce as dips, or cooked in a sour soup or hotpot.

Women in the Mekong Delta use small boats to pick these water lilies, wash and sell them at local markets. They have been doing this for generations. Water lily season in the delta lasts from early September to mid-November.
