      A few of my favorite things

      Several threads regarding lotuses have been posted lately, and with that theme I want to post some pictures of lotuses that I have had in the past. Most of you know that last year we downsized and moved so I do not have as many varieties as I have had in the past but I still enjoy the pictures. Last year I did not replant my lotuses as early so I may not be able to divide many this year also. I am anxious to see how many survived this cold winter. I am not posting the pics in order of my preferences, but will be posting alphabetically so as not to miss any nor to duplicate any. Here is American Yellow, or Chingapin.

      Here is today's pic of Apricot Blossom. A rare lotus that I got a tuber from Marie Fisher, my lily/lotus mentor. She passed away last year, and I really miss talking with her.

      Today's lotus pic is the dwarf lotus "Baby Doll." Baby Doll has pure white petals and a prolific bloomer.

      Beautiful bloom. I uncovered my lotus tubs for the year and they have many leaves so far. How are your tubers doing?

      That is great, Nancy. Mine are slow this year because of our weather.
      Today's beauty is another favorite dwarf, Frankly Scarlett.
