Lotus Saga Continues


This is the seed pod that developed from the lotus flower. I wish you could see a larger photo---the subtle color shifts add interest and depth to the simple, graphic shape of the pod.

Oh my! When I enlarged it, I was amazed at the wonderful shapes and details. The seeds look like little eyes.

Allison and No Rain---glad you could get the most out of the photo! I was recently able to harvest some seeds from that now dry pod. I may try to plant them in a few different ways and see if I can grow a plant from seed...
