Lotus Land

Our only docent-led tour was at Lotus Land. We heard fabulous stories about the very rich and very frugal Madame Ganna Walska. She loved looking for free thinks in her chauffeur-driven limo, like the slag glass pictured here. The visitor center with plants for sale was once the bath house for the pool. Now the pool has lotus and other water-loving plants in it. The very large very expensive ant sculptures out front were impressive. One was half underground burrowing, another was laying eggs.
