The Flowers & Plants of Costa Rica

We have our first real touch of cold here in Colorado, which – let’s face it, compared to other parts of the world, is not that cold… but when you have recently been to the rainforest, it sure feels cold. One of the things that fascinated me about Costa Rica was the diversity of its flora and fauna. Of course, I have no idea what the names of most of the plants were. In some ways, this is right up my alley because I take lots of flower photos here at home and generally have no clue what they are, even when they are in my backyard.

Can you help me identify these lovelies?

I would be happy to credit you when I update the post.

Either way, it feels nice to take a trip back to the tropics on a chilly day like today.

It’s real and they would not let us touch it.
