My mom planted this lotus a few years ago. The flower looks so pretty, so why not sharing with you all.
I am not sure what they call the yellow thing with the seeds, I guess, in the middle of the flower, since it is so beautiful, I decided to capture it,
This is the whole flower..
And, this "Crown of Thorns" we captured at our grandmother's small garden while we were in our home town..
