White Lotus, Los Angeles

In June, I visited The Japanese Garden in Van Nuys, Los Angeles. It was hot, but the time was ripe for viewing blooming lotus flowers.

The lotus is a diamond in the rough — it grows out of murky water. In Buddhism, the lotus is associated with purity of body, word, and mind; in Hinduism with beauty and prosperity.

Furthermore, a white-coloured lotus (they also come in pink and blue) represents an awakening to the wonder of it all.

Here’s to a wonder-filled weekend…
