FriFotos: Floral ubanity

Flowers are something that all human beings seem to love, although everywhere you go, you’ll find different species more beloved than others. And every culture has its own way of loving and displaying flowers. In light of this week’s #FriFotos theme on Twitter, which is of course “Flowers”, we decided to round up some beautiful pictures of flowers and the way they’re celebrated in some of Hg2s favourite cities. And be sure to follow us @Hg2 on Twitter for more fun and hedonistic madness.
