Lotus - photo by Charles Sloger. I have an infinite love for the Lotus. This year botanical has an amazing history rich in spiritual meaning. Should you ever read the story of the lotus, you will find that from muddy waters blooms beauty.
Banana flower - underneath the petals of the flower grow immature bananas. Eventually the petals fall off and the plant's stems reveal large clusters of green bananas. Banana flowers have a sweet scent and a taste - how creative is that!
