Ailsa at Where’s my Backpack has set “Flowers” as this week’s challenge. I’ve posted a couple of these before but I think only two or three of you have seen them, so please indulge me, dear readers, as I expand on my little collection of the flower sellers of the Delta.
In the week before Tet, the floating markets along the Mekong were alive with more than the usual amount of colour, as the flower growers took over the most visible locations on the banks of the rivers and canals. Most popular were the bright purple Bougainvillea, and for those with the money, a beautiful yellow flowering bonsai.
