~ first bloom of the lotus ~

24 April 2009

yesterday's lotus

i’m very proud to announce that the lotus plant that we got a little over a month ago has finally sprout a flower. it started about 11 days ago, when i noticed the tiny bud on the plant. the bud then got bigger and bigger everyday. and this morning, as we opened the backdoor, we were greeted by this:

fully blooomed!

what a happy day! i hope it will grow many more flowers.

there are more photos in blooming lotus flickr set, which i’ll probably add more photos of the flower withering in the next few days…
