People know of Hong Kong as a busy moders city and a flourishing commercial centre, but there is another, gentler face to Hong Kong. It is city of thick forests, heavily wooded country parks, natural water falls, forest trails, and lovely flowering trees and shrubs. I enjoyed my stay in Hong Kong, and the walks on its trails along hilly regions, flanked with flowering trees and shrubs. These are some of the cultivated flowers in various gardens. I shall be posting some of the wild flowers I found later.
