The Lotus are at their Peak

On July 2nd, we went to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens with our friends Bill Eilerman and Verda Van Hart.  The lotus were at their peak.  It was afternoon when we arrived, so many of them had closed up to protect them from too much sun.  Those that were open were past their peak and could no longer close.  We saw other wildlife, some pictured below.
