Sacred Lotus flower: Ofuna Botanical Garden (Kamakura)

Sacred Lotus flower: Ofuna Botanical Garden (Kamakura)

The long rainy season has finally ended, and the glaring sun of high summer has just begun to shine in the boundless azure sky. Absorbing the dazzling sunlight thirstily, sacred lotus flowers are emerging one after another from muddy water. 

In Asia, particularly in China, sacred lotus flowers are traditionally admired as the auspicious sign which symbolizes fertility, longevity, and prosperity.

Lotus flowers still retain the characteristics of the primitive flowers blooming in faraway ancient times, which makes me imagine the forgotten stories of life in the vast history of this planet.
