  1. A beautiful photo. I hope she made some sales.

    I have good news:

    The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience for me.

  2. they are natural deodorisers!

  3. The background is particularly curious: two vehicles parked at an angle and the lady actually sitting on a chair with a backrest. Really a sense of ease in a chaotic environment!

  4. the garlands are lovely, as isyour subject. what kinds of flowers do they use in the garlands?

  5. Its usually the Mogra, a variety of Jasmine, or Rajnigandha (Tuberose). Lotus, Hibiscus, Rose, Lilies and Marigolds are offered to Gods as flowers or in form of garlands.
    In India, Jasmine is often used as an offering to the Gods in the form of a garland or just flowers. Women, especially in South India regularly wear jasmine garlands in their hair. It is a common practice in cities too, especially during festivals, religious functions and weddings.
