Picture Postcards: Markets in The Netherlands and China

January 16, 2011 Comments disabled , , ,

Happy Monday to you! We have a double offering for you this week as two people have sent in their market photos.

The first photo is from Sandra and was taken at Luilabloemenmarkt in Almere, The Netherlands. It was snapped during Pentacost weekend and she says, “Pentecost occurs seven weeks (50 days) after Easter Sunday and comemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Christ after the Resurrection. It is celebrated on Sunday and Monday, the first and the second day of Pentecost.” She explained that people buy all these lovely flowers to put in their houses and gardens.

These two were sent in by Napatra in Beijing. They were taken at Panjiayuan Market which is an antiques market in Beijing, China. The colours at this market look amazing, don’t you think?
