Lotus Blossom

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 2 July 2017 in Plant & Nature.

There were a few lotus in bloom, but mostly buds. They will probably be in full bloom in another week or two.

Gorgeous! I fell in love with these blossoms in Bali.

@Steve Rice: I try to get out to this place every year. I was a little early this year. But I would love to see them growing in their natural environment. It must be incredible!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Oh this is darn near perfect, just that one piece of leaf intruding on the left :-)

2 Jul 2017 6:30pm

@Curly: I tried my best to get that leaf out of there. But I would have been in the pond! And maybe that would not have been a bad idea. It was really hot!
