Our travel group spent about an hour at the famous Kunming flower market. There was a wide variety of flowers, both living and cut, dried, and artificial. Craftsman took dried flowers and made new artificial flowers from them. Individually wrapped flowers are a testament to the cheap labor in China, and the need to create jobs for such a large population.

There were pre-planted flowers that you could buy and take home to grow. They came in little earthenware eggs, plastic cups, saw dust filled stockings, etc. I bought some in the cups and set them in my office window (as soon as they sprouted the rats in the office building ate them).

There were also large stores selling all kinds of flower products from shampoo to jewelry, potpourri, pillows, and essences. There was also a wide variety of artificial flowers and flower art. I decided to take lots of macro shots and make a fast paced slide show to record my time in the market. Get ready for some color.....

Beautiful flowers! that is the type of place I love to visit. Nice to hear from you and to hear your voice in the video too. Uncle Gary like watching the dump truck part.
Much love to you, Aunt Connie
