The Lotus Garden

The lotus garden near Sandbridge Beach is beginning to bloom. Today I stopped for a few minutes, trying to ignore the ridiculous heat and harsh midday glare.

    Rae, Your photos are fantastic, I also grow Nelumbo lutea and several others, Hideshi Sobue and I exchanged Lotus seed several years ago and I am curious as to his results.

      Hideshi, Did the N.lutea I sent you bloom? I would like to contact you about Lotus. I do not have your correct address.

        Unfortunnnately N.lutea you gave does not bloom.
        But they grow very well this summer.
