It was a bright and sunny day at Jindai Botanical Gardens. Click on the pictures to enlarge them!
These lotus buds have not bloomed yet. That is a seed pod near the base of one of the buds. The seed pod is located in the center of the lotus flower. The petals have fallen away from this one. Click on the label below to see more photos of lotus. You'll see that I have only gotten one photo of a lotus in bloom. I've been missing their bloom time!
