flowery cart

A street vendor selling flowers and other decorative plants on a cart at Jalan Aceh (Aceh street).

Thanks to its volcanic soil and temperate high-altitude climate, a lot of flowery plants grow well here. The city was even nick-named the flower city by its Dutch colonial rulers in the early 20th century. As some of you may remember, I have also previously posted a story about a village here whose farmers are specializing themselves in cultivating local and foreign flora.

I didn't know Bandung has not only lots of flowers, but also orchids! I love orchids! But I don't have a talent for growing flowers, so my orchids die after some time (maybe also because California actually has a desert climate -so it's very very dry!

we have that here too... usually, they would pass by our office in the late afternoon, but by then, some of their stocks have already wilted. ^0^
