Flower garlands for special occasions, strung at the Flower Market
Of all the places I have traveled, India takes color to a new level. It's everywhere, translated in food and flowers and clothes and celebrations. In every way, it was a privilege to witness life's comings and goings and to share in the warm generosity extended there.

Glorious silks and cottons

Sidewalk stalls filled with flowers and the wonderful scent of jasmine buds
Leggings and scarves in every color
Colored powders to use in celebrating Holi - the Hindu Festival of Colors, a welcome for Spring
Making use of those powders.....
Beautiful (and delicious) fruits!
