Welcome to this week’s {floral friday}!
Since the hubby and I are going out of town for a long weekend (pictures of Amsterdam will follow), my mom is stepping in again and offered to share some of her incredible photography. Danke Mama! ;)
She took these beautiful Lotus flower pictures two years ago in an arboretum in Hamburg. Aren’t they pretty?

A few facts about the Lotus:
  • According to Egyptian mythology, the Lotus is related to the sun, as it flowers at the day hours, and closes by night. The Lotus is even believed to have given birth to the sun. (source)
  • The Lotus is a sacred flower for Buddhists.
  • The Lotus flowers, seeds, young leaves and rhizomes are all edible.

I’m partying here

    Lotus flowers are so gorgeous! Lotus roots (rhizomes) are also delicious :)
