Flowers from Bhutan
Bhutan is a tiny Himalayan kingdom, which has the distinction of being rated the happiest place in the world. The people there are friendly and gentle, and the country is extremely beautiful. My daughter , who visited the happy place last week, sent me these pictures of flowers. I don't know the names of most of these flowers.
The pink flowers below are the Rhododendrons, which are the native os the Himalayas. They make jams and drinks from these flowers, which have medicinal properties.
The azalia is similar to the rhododendron, but is a bush.
The blue Himalayan Iris carpets the slopes of the hills in this season.
No wonder, the Bhutanese people have the highest Happiness Quotient in the world!
