Hong Kong spring flowers

Spring has sprung in Hong Kong and apart from a few gray and slightly wet days, the weather has been lovely – high 20s, sunny, not very humid. I wish it would stay like this all summer! Instead we have the usual very hot, very humid weather to look forward to…

But for now we must make the most of the beautiful weather, and enjoy the lovely flowers that have opened up everywhere. Hong Kong is in bloom!

I’ve had fun taking some photos, but please excuse my terrible lack of horticultural knowledge, I have no idea what most of them are!

Firstly, my Chinese New Year orchid is still going strong (with my curly bamboo in the background, in case you were confused!)

I think this is bougainvillea – it’s everywhere and it’s glorious!

Thanks for reading!
