Still in Bhutan (photograph was taken Oct 3 2014), we stop at a weaving facility, Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Centre. In here are a couple of rooms where women are sitting on the floor with their looms, handweaving cloth. The yarn is bright and colourful and the patterns are intricate.

I photographed this flower in ConcepciĆ³n, Chile. It is the flower of the abutilon pictum flowering maple shrub. The evergreen shrub can grow up to 5 meters and has yellow and green variegated foliage with these bright orange flowers.
