Flower Market

The flower market located on Flower Market Street (surprise, surprise!!) is the hub of HK's wholesale and retail floral business.

It's was surprisingly quiet when I was there - not too sure whether it's because it was on a week day or because there was a heavy downpour looming ahead. Anyway, I was extremely lucky to finish exploring the place before the heavy rain came. But I guess the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden (which is round the corner) would have to wait!

The miniature bamboo plants in abundance along the streets.
..along with bonsai plants. A full bloom lotus flower.
An array of bright and colorful, sweet-scented flowers under the dimly-lit chandelier.
