Just about ready…

Three buds and anxiously awaiting the flowers….I keep thinking tomorrow the largest one will burst open only to find… a larger bud.  I’m not certain if this is the Perry Slocum or it could possibly be the Red Scarf.  The Perry Slocum is one of my favorite lotus.  I think its because of the changes it goes thru.  It […]

Buzzing About
