This is the center of a lotus leaf taken in the yard. A friend gave me this dormant lotus in a big tub two weeks ago. He lives at a higher, cooler elevation, and after only a few days in our warm sun, this plant started sending up new leaves.
In the last two months or so since I signed up with Flickr, it's really become an important part of my day. I'm on holiday now, but I find myself wondering what amazing photos my contacts are posting when I'm away from the computer for too long. Flickr really is an addiction, and I hope to get a fix of your photo goodness later today.
