Flowers for Church Decorations

No, this is not yet for Valentine's Day. This was arranged by my wife for our church altar two Sundays ago. Before the service began, I placed it in the pew where there was enough light, and used my Nokia 6230i to take a pic.

Every early Sunday morning (or late Saturday evening) I accompany her to Carbon Market to buy flowers. She buys a bundle of this and that. It's amazing how she can buy plenty of flowers for only P150.

And from those bundles wrapped in old newspapers, comes a beautiful flower arrangement, that is perfected only by skilled hands.
