Lotus Bud

Lotus Bud

This was growing in a small Koi pond I saw at a nursery. It was nice because the buds were right along the edge of the display and easy to photograph. This is a link to a Wikipedia article on Lotus.

It really is a fascinating plant.

If you don’t have a water garden to grow a Lotus plant in you could always get your dog a Lotus chew toy.

That red carp looks cool too.
