Exotic Flowers of Rio de Janeiro

As promised, here is a detailed photo essay showing all the exotic flowers I discovered in Rio de Janeiro’s Botanical Garden.

For more information about Rio’s Jardim Botanico read my previous post.

In this garden, I was able to get a glimpse of the magnificent flora found in Brazil.  What surprised me most were the bromeliads.  My mom used to have a bunch of these in our backyard.  However, it was fascinating to discover so many colors and shapes.  The Amazonian water lilies were spectacular too.

Enjoy this photo Friday!!!

      • this is so beautiful i want to go to rio so bad i want to go there and just be free and paradise(:

  1. I love exotic flowers and these are beautiful. The giant Amazon water lilies are incredible — would love to see those.

  2. Gorgeous. I like the purple orchid best.

    • Interesting since the purple orchid photo was a really bad one. I cropped it to something usable since I loved the color.

  3. Oh, Ruth, SO pretty! I really like the lily pad ones. At first I thought they were snakes…but not in a scary or yucky way. They looked so graceful. I finally figured out when I read the description but I really liked that one best! (But all of your photos were stunning.) Thank you for taking me to the Botannical Garden in rio this way!

    • Hey Courtney,
      I don’t really like snakes so I would not put a photo of one in the website. Funny that you thougth the lilies were reptiles. Glad you are enjoying Rio thru the photos.
