Come Hither
Come Hither
~ Lotus ~

A rework of a favorite...Another lotus of the many found at the lotus pond at Zilker Park Botanical Gardens here in Austin. I love the folded-over petal - it gives such a beckoning, come closer look. These are such grand flowers...looking forward to next summer's crop!

~Happy Thanksgiving, One and All!~
