Photographer's Note

Recently on TE Abmdsudi posted a picture of Lotus flower buds, which reminded me that I had taken this picture when visiting Kew Gardens.

"The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet.
The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty.
Untouched by the impurity, the lotus symbolises the purity of heart and mind.
It represents long life, health, honour and good luck."

Unlike the water lily whose leaves float on the surface of the water, the leaves of the lotus rise up and stand proud of the water.

Thanks for looking.
