More Lotus Blossoms

Gu Yi Yuan is a Ming dynasty private residence in the style of Jiang Nan garden compound. Buildings of various functions, ponds, streams, pavilions, rock mountains combined with landscaping of regional vegetation. Lotus is one of the must have elements in a garden. Annual lotus festival at Gu Yi Yuan is one of the highlight events. I had the pleasure to be there amongst thousands blooming lotus, reminded me of a lyric "I'm like a bee (bird), I wanna fly away~"  :P
