Lotus in Bloom

A couple of weekends ago, a friend tipped us about the Waterlily Festival at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. We went in the morning at about 10 because apparently the blooms close up in the heat. It turned out to be an excellent suggestion with plenty of photo ops. Already, there were plenty of serious photographers with their tripods and long lenses.  I got some good pictures and we left just as the sun was climbing overhead, to get a delicious brunch of sweet potato pancakes – nom! A day well spent.
