Flowers Market near Lunar New Year

This is how the HK Tourism Board introduces the Flowers Market in Hong Kong:IMG_1451

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.IMG_1452
We don’t go there once a year; we go there almost every month.

That’s where my wife buys most of the flowers.IMG_1454

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.IMG_1450

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!IMG_1453

Orchids

We bought a lot of orchids of different colors, sizes, patterns for the Chinese New Year.

Now the festive season has gone and the orchids, after blooming for a couple of months, have all withered.

In replacement, we bought some white ones.Orchids

These flowers have extra large petals.

They are just so lovely!
