My First Lotus Bloom!


I interupt my Pears WIP to bring you my first lotus bloom! I have taken other pictures but this one is actually my plant. Last year I put out just a couple of seed that I collected. In one season the lotus pads have covered one end of my pond and this bloom is actually on the opposite side from where I planted the seed. I don't think DH is thrilled with my new plant but the blooms are so beautiful. So far I see two more buds so everyone will be seeing more pictures I am sure. If you click on the picture it will show you the larger one so that you can see the details.

I clicked to get the larger picture. Oh my gosh, it's beautiful! No wonder you're so excited!

Oh, I would be excited about this, too, Vicki :) Beautiful - I see many paintings to come from your own flowers - how wonderful!

Thanks Candy and Rhonda. I am doing a daily update of the bloom on my flickr site.

Will expect painting(s) from this! Also am loving your C/P pears and waiting for next stage.

Thanks Deb! I do hope that I can do my lotus justice in a painting or two.
