I had forgot l had all these pictures of Christmas time at the Flower Market. I went down there one morning
and just wandered around through all the plants. So its rather late but flowers are timeless!!
|This Christmas store is open year around and is jammed packed with stuff for four floors. The upper|
floor is dried and artificial flowers and one floor is more for weddings. This store is at
the beginning of the Flower Market streets.
|This year they seemed to have more real trees of all sizes. The big ones are very expensive.|
|The decorations here are generally very sparkly and sometimes quite over the top!|
|Not so much green and red here but lots of different colors.|
|I actually rather liked the purple!!|
|Lots of wire type things!|
|Some more traditional looking snowmen and tree.|
|The store decorations are quite interesting!|
|This has snowflakes and l'm not sure what the pink things, but it was very large with lots of beads!|
|The angles come in large sizes too!|
|Lots of glitz and glitter on everything.|
|Each little shop is packed with fresh flowers. Roses of every color.|
|Of course at Christmas time there are poinsettias of every size and color.|
|Flowers are really cheap here. Some of those bunches are only about a dollar Canadian.|
|You can always buy lilies here. These were about $3. Can.|
|Most of the shops are quite small, but this one is fairly large and spacious.|
|They had these cute little kind of puckered up poinsettias that l had never seen before.|
|I loved the color of this one, but don't know what it is. Anyone know?|
|Lots of tropical type plants.|
|These large poinsettias were around $10 Can.|
|Snapdragons and Sweet William are planted in the beds at Sky Tower now.|
|Hydrangeas were around $9 Can.|
|Aren't the roses lovely? Not much fragrance but pretty just the same.|
|There seemed to be a lot of gladiolus around too.|
|I'm not sure what this is. It almost looks like a water lily. I loved the color!|
|What ever they are you can get a dozen for less than $3 bucks Cad.|
|I just want to go and buy one of each!|
|Before we leave and l am going to get myself an orchid! At the flower show in|
March you could buy them for next to nothing.
|If you need a snack of kumquats, or little pumpkins or tomatoes, you can get those at the |
Flower Market too!!
|You can even get real cotton boles and pick them yourself! I don't know if l've ever seen real cotton still|
on the stalks. I had to come to Hong Kong to see it!!
|Of course there is bamboo of every size!|
|And tucked away l found cosmos, tomato plants, strawberry plants, blueberry bushes and l can't|
remember what all was mixed in there, but it made me feel like home, and ready to garden!!
