Lotus flowers blossom fragrantly
In May, the charming pink lotus flowers signal a new season of flowers.
Lotus flowers blossom in Xuan Dinh lotus ponds in Tu Liem district, Hanoi.
Lotus flowers are picked between 3-4a.m when dew still remains on the flowers’ calyx.
The aroma, in line with the charming pink and green leaves, attract bees.
Green leaves, pink petals in the middle of yellow pistils create a uniquely natural picture.
Mr. Dat, a owner of Xuan Dinh lotus pond, says that although each day he harvests over 1,000 flowers, it isn’t enough to meet customers’ demand.
Flowers blossom and spread their aroma.
Each 10-flower bouquet is sold at VND50,000-100,000. Its pure aroma and colour make summer more graceful.
Bicycles full of lotus flowers make people feel peaceful and gentle.
