CNY 3 - Properous Bloom

Glorious Royal Yellow Bloom

Chrysthemums always carry an air of regality, to me. In a 2007 chinese movie starring Chow Yuen Fatt and Gong Li, you can see millions of these flowers laid out at the palace grounds. It was for a festival called Chong Yang.
Chong Yang is not celebrated in Malaysia, but for CNY, chrysthemum is of great demand. I am not sure of their significance but suppose the glorious yellow bloom is delightful during festive.
I am sure you have had chrysthemum tea in chinese restaurants. Do you like it?

Not if its fragrance is too strong. I generally like the tea Chinese restaurants serve.

Lovely silky mums in those pix. :)
