spring and all its flowers

Tuesday, April 6, 2010


Spring and all its flowers
     now joyously break their vow of silence.
It is time for celebration, not for lying low;
You too - weed out those roots of sadness from your heart.
~ Hafiz (1320-1389)

Wow...That is just an incredible combination of textures and elements. So softly feminine, and intricate. Beautiful! Iflorist.co.uk

Looks like it eats insects! But it has terrific colours. I wonder what it smells like.

they are called sal flowers, aka shorea robusta, from the cannonball tree and smell really wonderful. i saw them all over the place when we went to siem reap. i don't remember the exact story told by our guide, but those flowers hold significance in Buddhism.
