The Last Of The Lotus Flowers.....



~ At the heart of Nelumbo Nucifera ~


As we bid goodbye to the season of summer
we also say good bye to the beautiful and fragrant sacred lotus
which have been flowering in our Botanic Gardens
 over the preceeding few months.

One by one the last of the petals will fall
only to return again to beautify our world in the springtime.




~  été au revoir  ~
