Love of Lotus

OK, after many sleepless nights, I came to the conclusion that I want to become a Lotus lover and expert. Easy said than done, I know, but I'll try. About a week ago, I began the germinating process for a Nelumbo nucifera seed. A new growth emerged only after a couple of days. That is amazingly rewarding, to see a new development emerging from nothing. Not really from nothing, but from a seed. According to theory, the seedling starts out with two new growths. When they reach the water surface, the waterproof leaves will begin to unfold. It will take two years for the beautiful lotus flowers to come to life. Come back here in the fall of 2013 to see the first flowers of this plant.
