string of pearls

At Lake Market, there are several flower vendors or phulwallahs. Right now they have red and yellow roses, marigolds, gladiolis, tuberose and lots of varieties of jasmine. I love the white scented flowers, and watching the men thread them into garlands is mesmerising. They sit on low wooden tables and work, enveloped in sweet perfume.
