Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant ( Orchid)
This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Vibrant.
The most commonly bought flowers for the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong is now the Orchid.
As with previous years, I bought Orchids for my home.
The flowers can usually last for a couple of months and, therefore, you are sure that you have some beautiful flowers around during the festive season.
Here are some of the lovely orchids. Please enjoy.
Flowers Market near Lunar New Year
This is how the HK Tourism Board introduces the Flowers Market in Hong Kong:
Hong Kong’s Flower Market is a jungle of exotic blooms and scents that’s worth immersing yourself in.
The dozens of shops and wholesalers here sell auspicious blossoms and luck-bringing houseplants to an enthusiastic crowd all year round. But the lead up to Chinese New Year is when things really heat up, as families flock towards the market to carefully select flowers and greenery that attract good luck and fortune as a new lunar cycle begins.
We don’t go there once a year; we go there almost every month.
That’s where my wife buys most of the flowers.
As we are nearing the Chinese New Year, the place becomes hotted up. There are many local as well as overseas tourists visiting the place.
The most popular flower there is the Orchid, they are mainly from China, some are also imported from Korea as well.
At this time of the year, they have peach blossoms as well as water lilies and other flowers.
A good time to be around there at the most busy time of the year!
Here are some photos taken in the flowers market with a smart phone.
