Three's a Crowd

Arrangement # 69
This morning I woke up early because I'll be attending an 'akad nikah' ceremony where in the Muslim custom the prospective bridegroom will pronounce his acceptance of marriage to the bride in front of elders and a big crowd ( or small according to one's preferences).  Therefore a quick stroll around the garden will suffice.  To my delight three hibiscus ( Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) flowers were ready for the picking. In quick succession ,I placed them in a glass of water with some leaves of the mother-in-law's tonque ( Sansevieria trifasciata ) and then kept the glass in a mini 'tambuk' and into an antique iron. The title...Three's a Crowd.
An interesting  use of the hibiscus image as coloured lighting motif is seen yesterday on a urban road,Kuching City.
