Can I talk about this one plant today?
Many times a certain plant has stolen all of my attention and love.
Right now this lotus has me mesmerized!
The leaves are huge and sturdy but dazzling at the same time.
The bloom reminds me of a peony but it has an amazing yellow pod in the middle.
The sun beats down on this water plant and it absolutely glows.
Some groups consider the water lotus to be sacred because it rises from the muck of rivers and streams with strength and beauty. Parts of this plant are edible.
This one lotus has added so much to the pond. We love it!
And I love this goofy man who does goes along with my ideas.

The lotus is so large that he had to climb in to put it in place.
No leaning over to place this plant!
We are so glad you are joining us for the garden party today. I can't wait to see what you share. :)
