Flowers for prayers

I was in the vicintity of Waterloo Street when I saw these huge Chrysanthemum flowers at one of the numerous stalls in front of the Waterloo Street Kwan Yin Temple. I asked permission to photograph these impressive looking flowers that you could buy to offer to the Goddess of Mercy when you pray at the temple and was told that the colours of these flowers, except the yellow ones, were artificially infused.
Lotus buds are the preferences of some devotees at the temple.
The bright and cheerful colours of Waterloo Street.Tomorrow is the first day of the eighth month in the Lunar Calendar.
