Weekend Reflections- Flower Market

Whenever I go to Mysore, I love to visit the flower market there. The colours and scents of the flowers gladden my heart. In the image above, the bright orange flowers of the Kanakambara flowers (Crossandra) are in a heap beside the heap of the fragrant white tuberose blossoms.
Nearby is the vegetable market with heaps of chillies and ginger, with their pungent smells.
My thanks to James at http://newtowndailyphoto.blogspot.com for hosting this wonderful meme.

  4. Wow the flower colors are awesome. Do you mix those in your cooking? I missed the ginger it's so expensive here and I want ginger to all my soup. ^_^ Thanks for the visit!
