Thank you also for giving everyone who participate this very special award.
My photos this week are from a trip I took to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens some time ago.
We start of at the Japanese Garden which was a gift to commemorate the historic trip of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Paul Snyder, the first official delegate to the Sister City association with Moji, Japan.
The Lotus was a beautiful sight to behold.
And so were the Fabiola Water Lilies. I am not sure but I may have shown the lilies in a previous post some months back. My apologies if this is a repeat.
This was the main reason I had gone to the garden on that occasion, as I had heard about this plant. The explanation next to it read: "Once in a Lifetime: You are witnessing the only flowering of this specimen of Century Plant (Agave Americana). The Mexican native may wait between 10 to 60 years to flower, depending on climatic conditions. This plant is 15 to 25 years old. After flowering the main plant will die, but small offshoots will continue to grow around the mother plant."
