Lotus Update


Finally in bloom! In a previous post I opined that the uplifted leaves of my lotus were a sure sign of imminent flowers. Well, it’s been a bit longer than I expected (wished for?) but this weekend we were rewarded with our first lotus bloom of the summer. These are such stunning flowers. They make me feel like my city patio has been transformed into an exotic Asian resort (minus the humidity!); a fun escape on a hot summer day.

Thanks, ladies! I have two more flower buds at this time, but I think they will bloom one at a time. That's OK with me---prolongs the entertainment!
