Lotus festival

The annual observance of the Lotus Festival in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA was a mild disappointment this year, to say the least. The reason? No lotus flowers in the lake for unknown reasons. Considering that the reliability of their profuse blooming every summer is as certain as the traffic gridlock in LA, visitors from within and outside the area were vocally disgruntled. Locals were disconcerted and at a loss on how to explain to their out-of-town friends the absence of the floral attractions.

in the murky water
global warming here?
