Mystical Majesty

The sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) is blooming at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Mystical, majestic and magnificent with a magical fragrance. Apparently all parts are edible, but there’s more than simple satisfaction in either the sight or aroma alone – and the combination is marvelous.
