Lotus Blossoms

These pictures of a lotus blossoms and pods full of seed is so lovely. I have not had fresh lotus seeds since I was a child. Sometimes I eat raw snap peas to remind me of these seeds and bring me back to my childhood.

And lotus blossoms also remind me of mother, a devout Buddhist.  In Buddhism, lotus blossoms symbolize purity and wisdom. And no matter how far I am from home, to see a lotus blossom is to bring me back to my mother’s side once again.
