Bangkok Flower

At first, this flower reminded me of my favorite tree, the pink mimosa, always blooming when I am on the Vineyard (can't wait for that..the smell is heavenly).
This one, however, is mostly white, with the pink just at the tips, and tiny yellow spots that catch your eye.  It fell in a park, by the river.  Silky and and so delicate, it is no match for this city, the asphalt it fell onto, the women ready to sweep it up before another one can fall and join it. 

On second thought, this flower reminded me of here, Bangkok. It is both "showy" and sweet. The slender stems like the locals; always busy, going this way and that, somehow all coming together into a beautiful ensemble.
Most of the time.
