Gu Yi Yuan being one of the landmarks of Shang Hai attracting millions visitors from around the world, hosts many special seasonal events each year. Summer is the season for lotus, this year is particularly spectacular. A national lotus show is going on now in the garden compound, showing off more than 1000 varietals. My girlfriend whose husband manage the garden has done an excellent job. Knowing lotus is one of my favorite plant, here are some of the hundreds pictures she shared with me. I shall attend in person one year to flow through the green waves of lotus leaves, inhale that fresh lotus fragrance through my pores.
