 Having visited the Blue Lotus Garden here in Victoria today, Here I was stunned by the various shapes and stages of the gorgeous flowers.
                          Only partially open, this is nevertheless  beautiful in it's shape and form.
                                                 Even the simple single white is beautiful
 This double pink is really quite blowsy, but the central seed capsule is quite fascinating. It's slightly warm to the touch and emits a smell rather like menthol!
 T  he gardens harvest the seed heads for the florist trade and sell them green and dried brown.
                                     These are the giant version, standing well above the water.
