I was completely inspired by a fragmentary view of lotus flowers and leaves in a wastewater pond by a roadside near Chiang Mai, Thailand, and began paying more attention to this beautiful plant. They are everywhere in ditches and there are many different kinds - white, pink, red, magenta, rose, purple... with big flat leaves, leaves that stick up out of the water, leaves that crowd each other, leaves that spread out leaving space between.
