Flowers In Mexico – a photo essay

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on September 20, 2007 0 Comments

I don’t have a lot to say about the flowers I’ve photographed in Mexico because, quite frankly, I don’t know the names of many of them. So I’ll let the flowers do most of the talking. Feel free to help out if you know what they are!

I think this is a Hibiscus with purple bouganvilea in the background. This was taken in front of the apartment where I stay when in Zihuatanejo.

The next few are also within 50 yards of the apartment.

 Just across the canal on Adelita Street is a little garden near my favorite restaurant, Salvador’s. I took the next photos in that garden.

The following photos are from a road trip I took up to the State of Michoacan.

And the following are those that my feeble mind just can’t place.

 The image http://media-files.gather.com/images/d296/d375/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.This is the tallest flower I’ve ever seen!

And, finally, a couple from my very favorite place in the entire world, Barra de Potosi.

Please let me know if you know what any of these flowers are. Until I learn the names I’ll just keep snapping the shutter and sharing the photos!
