Lotus in Pasadena

Still in Pasadena, and have been at the Huntington Library and botanical gardens.
I haven’t seen all yet, but until now my favorite spot is the Chinese Garden.

Real lotuses, delightful!
Acccording to Buddhism,
”Like a lotus flower that grows out of the mud and blossoms above the muddy water, we can rise above the defilements and sufferings of life.”
