Flowers and Plants 4 - Jim Wageman

Yet another sampling of some of the wonderful flora that thrive in Thailand's tropical climate. Orchids grow in the wild in Thailand's forests and are also raised on farms that supply them to both  local and  international markets. Some of the photos of lotuses and other aquatic plants shown in this gallery were taken at the excellent Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens in Mae Sa Valley, just north of Chiang Mai. Again, as noted before, corrections to wrong identifications are welcome, as are identifications where none currently exist!
