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.
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.
At this time of the year, they have peach blossoms as well as water lilies and other flowers.
Here are some photos taken in the flowers market with a smart phone.
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.
These flowers have extra large petals.
They are just so lovely!
