This collection of flowers is from assorted locations.

The rose was taken on a walk with my sister near her home in Los Gatos.

The orchids were taken at an orchid exhibition in Rio de Janeiro Brasil at the Jardim Botanico. I highly recommend this garden if you are ever in Rio.

The water lily was taken from a kayak on the water of the Santo Antonio River of Chapada Diamantina near Lencois - BA, Brasil.

The hand holding the flowers is that of my girlfriend Micky, and was located in Parque Ibirapuera of Sao Paulo. The photo of the heart made of flowers was made with the same flowers and includes my girlfriend and I standing looking at it. Ibirapuera is a wonderful park with several wonderful museums and public spaces being well utilized by the locals.

The Gerber Daisies are from Holambra - SP, or Cidade Das Flores (City of Flowers) in Brazil. It's where most of the flowers in Brazil come from and is a fun one day trip. You can tour the farms, but there is not a ton to see outside of the tours. We went there for the Festival das Flores (Festival of Flowers), which was basically an expo.
