This Sunday while we were out birding we drove by a pond that has a huge stand of lotus. They are about finished blooming this time of year. There were a few blooms left. This one was surrounded by a bud, a spent flower and a pod. I just had to try to get it on paper. The wind was blowing them so hard the big leaves were turning over and the bloom seemed to be waving goodbye.
Happy Blooming Tuesday to everyone.
