Cherry blossoms, plum blossoms, peach blossoms, and wintersweets have waved goodbye and summer has come. Now it’s the show time for lotus, which is stainless from its slimy bed. One of the symbols of the West Lake, lotus has been praised by numerous poets and writers of generations. The lake has already been filled with blooming lotuses although the best time for them hasn’t come yet.
