With the summer now in full swing, I encourage you to visit Untermyer Gardens in all its glory. At the very center of the Walled Garden is a display of lotuses that is simply stupendous. The large and colorful blossoms speak eloquently to the garden’s Indo-Persian heritage, as the lotus is the national flower of India and the symbol of Anahita, the Persian goddess of water.
