Love your banner, Casey. I tip my hat to you. Lotus seed pods are so interesting.

I can imagine it as the head of an alien creature with several eyes (go with me here), each eye like that of a chameleon, swiveling in its socket. If I sit back and squint, the eyes even come to life. Thumbs up

Incredible banner Casey!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I am so impressed by unique banners; and this one has it all. Like Baja, my imagination goes to the image of a plant iphone for the Lotus' in need. nodding Great perspective of plant diversity.

There is a Thai restaurant in Hot Springs that has a lotus garden and I always check it out when we pass by. If I'm lucky, I can catch them when they are in bloom.

Many thanks @rocklady, @EscondidoCal, @Frenchy21, @Baja_Costero, @crawgarden, @TBGDN, @Fleur569, @Marilyn, @GaNinFl and @Legalily for the delightful comments and observations!! Thank you @Dutchlady1, @tx_flower_child, @Fleur569, @GaNinFl, @webesemps and @Whitebeard for the acorns!!! And thanks to everyone for the thumbs up!!

Jean - I agree! They are spectacular things! Always makes my day when I see them in bloom.

Cal - I haven't grown them before, but plan to add a water garden in the not-too-distant future. And I cannot believe I found pics of the blooms! See attached!

Frenchy, Baja and Fleur - Love the other-worldly / alien reference. So true!

Leon - Welcome back!!!
