Lotus Flower Quilt

Yesterday we visited Wrights Water Gardens at Patumahoe - just a little south of Auckland.

They are amazing gardens, especially the Lotus Ponds.

They reminded me so much of my trips to Japan.

It was the perfect time of year to visit as the flowers were in full bloom.


They reminded me of a Japanese quilt that  I made many years ago.

And a beautiful silk stuffed dried lotus head given to me as a gift on
one trip. And customs were happy for me to bring it having once proved 
it had no seeds still within it.
