When I think of fresh cut flowers I think of hot houses, first world nations, and florists. I was astounded to find so much flowers for sale at the market today. I wondered do they just grow wild? It can´t be grown in a hot house like it is in the US? Then I wonder who buys them and what do they buy the flowers for? For their wifes and their love? For their god and their faith? Or do the good people of Chiapas just buy them because they are pretty and who wouldn¨t want fresh flowers in their homes?
