These were taken at the Norfolk Botanical Garden a while back.  I was in the Japanese Garden admiring the lotus blossoms.

So that's what Lotus blossom actually looks like. One hears the name far more often than one sees photographs.

I had no idea the lotus was so pretty. I like the underside of the leaf, most unusual.

Dear Denise,
Lotus are such beautiful flowers and you have captured them so wonderfully.
The last picture is funny, because the capsule looks a little bit like a little sweet monster with lots of eyes which watch us :)

Thanks for hosting this wonderful meme!!!
I hope you can enjoy your weekend!!!
Lots of love
Katrin :)

Those lotuses are beautiful. Love that pink hue against the green leaves.

Love your photos of the sheep, also.

Every time you show photos from the Norfolk Botanic Garden, I think, I must visit. Now that I have two granddaughters living there and the train runs down that way, I wonder?

Karen S. said...

What an amazing place to visit and snap photos!

Robert Bennett said...

Pretty! They make me think of Wild Marshmallow (the flower, not the food).

These are gorgeous Denise!
I never saw them before I
believe :)) Except for the
last picture - I think I
saw something like that
dried for home decoration.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Stunning things. Love that seed pod too.

I have not taken but a couple pics of water lilies this year, and neither was any good. And I have so been wanting to see some and am afraid they are all gone by now...but at least I am seeing yours. they are beautiful.

All beautiful, but I'm puzzled by that last oe the green roundish thing, I do love lotus/water lilies. Thanks s much for hosting.

They are all beautiful Denise, but something about the first one and the beautiful red dress and red turban is stunning.
