Lotus 'field'

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, located in northeast Washington, D.C., has an annual lotus and water lily festival in summer, but unfortunately the National Park Service couldn't hold it this year due to the pandemic. Luckily they reopened the gardens a few weeks ago, so visitors were at least able to see the beautiful display. They set up one-way signs on the paths through the ponds to allow for social distancing, and I'd say at least 90 percent of the visitors were wearing face coverings.

Best to view in "Original" because other versions resized by Pbase are decidedly unsharp.

That'd be luxuriant even in the wet tropics! The lotus foliage is so fresh.

What a neat display. Love seeing all the different stages of the lotus flowers from the buds to the spent pods.
