Beautiful, love the pots so much. I remember looking at your garden last year and thinking I could do that with my back door pathway, I am sorry to say I COPIED but you can have the marks for inspiring me to plant them up. Lovely pictures.

Are the Lotus in a tub? I would love a pond but our garden is on a hill and is quite wet so my husband is worried it might flood the house. :0/
