We started our Monday with a visit to the flower market, which is a part of the big Warowot Market that we visited last week. I never get tired of looking at flowers, and this market was a riot of beautiful color!
There were many vendors selling these arrangements, which are used as offerings at Buddhist shrines:
This young man is hard at work, carefully constructing one of those "towers"
We see theses hanging loops of flowers, both small and large, everywhere-used as offerings at shrines, hanging on tuk-tuks, and even on boats on the river.
These ladies were busy stringing them up, and seem to be having a great time, chatting and laughing.
There were orchids everywhere!
Beautiful fresh herbs and greens:
This gentleman was selling those pretty red strawberries we've been seeing all over. He'd just pile them into these handwoven baskets already lined with newspaper, weigh them up, and there you have it! Beautiful strawberries in a pretty basket--much nicer than our plastic bag in the supermarket!
This is for my Mom and Dear Bren--if you go to Thailand and don't pack a-bra-a-day, just go to the market and pick your color! You'll find them right next to the fresh herbs.........
Not to worry, Dan, we didn't get you either of these!
