White Lotus Garden

I was in a public park where there's a big pond of white lotus.

I took many pictures but I didn't seem to get a good one that I could be proud of.

Was it my camera or was I just not in my best position to get a good shot?

I hope it's one of both because, I'm afraid, looking at the quality of flowers and the leaves, 
the pond seems sick.

On the second thought, I think not!

"White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black...God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white." 
- G. K. Chesterton

    Tropical Flowers ....In My Garden

    Nothing much is happening in my garden except that all my flowers continue to bloom under the heat of the sun and the heavy downpour of the rain.

    Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
