Lotus Flowers






These are so pretty I just had to share them.
We bought a beautiful Lotus plant a couple of years ago and popped it in out Dam, it has spread like wildfire and looks so lovely when in flower with its enormous pale pink flowers and big leaves which the frogs call home. The sound outside in summer is amazing, all different frog voices singing and croaking. My goats also like to nibble on the ones that grow close to the edge. My boys were swimming yesterday in the searing Melbourne heat and I asked them to swim out and pluck a few for me. Here they are..
Have a nice day!

Those flowers are so beautiful! What a lovely pond! You are so blessed. My husband and I have been praying that we can find a house out in the country. I really want to be in the middle of nature!

Your blog is so pretty! You should come over to my blog for a visit.

Happy Easter!

Hugs, Sharon
