two coins

If you have only two coins
buy a bread for one
and a flower for the other
the bread for the stomach
the flower for the soul
(Chinese saying - or at least that's what I've been told)

I picked these on my way home today and saved my second coin for something else.

I always thought that someone carrying flowers on the street to be a happy and lucky person. I can't agree more with that Chinese saying, although sometimes I forget about it... :)

I like those simple, tender flowers.
