The flower market is in the older part of the city close to China town. Every time I go there I am amazed at the amount of flowers, the number of sellers and the vibrant colours. How they sell them all is a mystery to me as business seemed very quiet while I was there.

Excellent, John...! :smile:

I've often wondered how they can make money as well... Seems they couldn't possibly
sell ALL the flowers and they would have a lot of waste...

Could they possibly be selling off what is past prime to others that dry them and use
them for things like dried flower arrangements, potpourri, scents/perfumes and such...?

Thanks for the nice comment. Maybe I should suggest that business opportunity next time out there? :wink:

Great shots! Love the colors of all the images and I can smell them again from the time I was walking the markets myself.
