Foraging in public places

Ah, what is lovelier than a pale pink lotus in bloom? You can find them in freshwater on the edge of lakes and ponds. Or in the middle of a garden crowded with tour guides bellowing into megaphones about the cost of the landscaping in today’s dollars and asking visitors to identify which rock formation looks like a lion.
After a few weeks, the flower sheds its petals and turns into a green stalk packed tightly with seeds.
And that is when you eat it.
