Most of the flower stalls were selling narcissus (shui xian hua, 水仙花) an auspicious plant for the Chinese New Year. I bought a bulb back to Singapore, hoping that it will grow well in our tropical climate.
Another popular flowering plant is the Azalea.
I was particularly impressed with the way they've trained the branches of these azaleas (below) into a long and horizontal shape.
The Chinese New Year is a month away. Can you imagine how packed the streets would be in the days leading to the new year?
