Day Eighty-Two: Bonsai

Flower Market at the Green Garden, Pudong, Shanghai

Checking out terrariums at the Green Garden Flower Market, Pudong, Shanghai

The continued sunshine and warm weather had people out roaming the streets and parks yet again, today, and we were no different, walking to a local flower market looking for some houseplants and cut flowers. The market, on Pujian Lu, has a good selection of flowering outdoor plants, outdoor fountains, bonsai’s –from small 6″ desktop plants to massive 5′ tall trees– bunches of cut flowers, bouquets, terrariums, goldfish, aquariums, rabbits and rats. And that’s just on the first level! Upstairs there are furniture dealers, art shops–some good, some bad–jade dealers and a couple of snooker parlors. We walked home with a bouquet, a terrarium and 14″ tall bonsai tree.
