Love this photo, the flowers are very pretty, and the woman has such beautiful hands, holding out the strings of blossoms in such an elegant gesture. What are the flowers for - an offering maybe?

Mojo said...

I've always been amazed at the patience it must take to string these garlands so perfectly. I guess it gets easier with practice like anything else, but still...
And jasmine is such a small bloom too!
Neat shot here.

I remember, we use to make those when we were kids. I love the smell of Jasmine. Here they're more commonly called "sampguita".

Happy WW!
