Look!: Submerged Flowers

Look!: Submerged Flowers

On a recent trip to Bukhara, our favorite Indian restaurant in Jamaica Plain, we were mesmerized by these flowers living underneath the water. Our first thought was "what a beautiful, novel idea." Incredulous, we asked the staff how long the flowers had been living in there...

Let us qualify their response by saying we have a terrible Bukhara takeout habit so these guys have come to feel pretty comfortable with us. So, when asked about the shelf life of the underwater flowers, they giggled. A lot. "They're fake." Oh right, of course they are.

We think fake flowers can be pretty tough to pull off but somehow, soaking them in water, makes them alluring. To us. We're confident you'll have a different opinion...

What do you think?
