“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Complete Fairy Tales
I was on Goodreads earlier today and this quote really resonated with me. No, I don’t think of flowers as essential but, I love visiting markets when I travel (as evidenced in this post) so seeing the words “flower” and “freedom” (freedom equals travel to me) in the same sentence took me to the flower market in Bangkok.
So I thought I’d share with you a few pictures from the day I spent leisurely walking in it.
