Buddha has always been one of the most popular décor elements in my home. His tranquil and composed stature always seems to spread vibrations of calm and peace.
This graceful mudra (gesture) of Buddha’s hand pointing towards heaven symbolizes offering a way of peace and enlightenment. We found this wonderful piece at World Market and at once knew I had to have it.
The hand mudra together combined with the wild chicory flowers equates to nothing less than an exotic setting. To appreciate the splendor of these bright blue beautiful flowers one would have to wake up early cause once the sun is up the flowers tend to close up for the rest of the day! Yup, I woke up early and didn't regret it one bit. Researching about this common Virginia wildflower reveals that it has an ancient past and was used in cooking in Europe as the leaves bitterness is appreciated in certain cuisines. The plant also has medicinal properties.
A few sprays of these beautiful flowers transformed the coffee table at my place. The magic of fresh flowers is indisputable. Enjoy your long weekend and do drop in again on more of modest joys of life !!!!
