Lotus Lilies

Nelumbo lutea

Description:

Yellow water Lily towering over a sizable cupped leaf in a pond

Habitat:

Ponds- fresh water. I hope to get a better picture when we have more lilies in bloom. I can often tell the Season by looking at this pond.

Notes:

Kipling wrote the story "When the Butterfly Stamped" and in describing King Solomon's garden, the Lotus Lily is mentioned.

Great series, Alice. My favourite is the third photo where you can see a bit of paradise.
