Floral offerings in spring

In celebration of the first day of spring I thought I would share some images from a trip we took a few years ago to Thailand. I was so moved by the simple perfection of floral offerings and sacred gardens in the opulent temples of Bangkok.

What a gift - lotus blossoms

No shoes in such a place of reverence

Offerings of gold shimmered with the slightest breeze sending rays of light dancing into the courtyard

A clear perfect balance is seen everywhere in the gardens simultaneously conveying a sense of control and a giving in to the whim of natures pure line and form

She seems so happy to receive this tiny garland of fragrant blooms

This giant tree was covered in the most curious blooms
