Waterlilies Being a fan of capturing reflections, I spent more than an hour in and around the small Lotus pond at Longwood gardens, clicking pictures to my heart's content. Truly a great place!

Lotus...love these. You can use the leaves for cooking wraps, eat the roots and enjoy the flowers.

I have only grown one lotus in my pond but it was one of the highlights of my garden summer that year.
