I grew up with a father who took pictures of Jamaica wherever he went. At least half of these were of flowers, which he loved. He and my mother taught me to take notice of our beautiful Jamaica, where there is so much contrast and loveliness in our natural surroundings.
You'll notice that in these photos of Jamaican flowers I've included the croton plant, which is technically not a flower. Here in St. Elizabeth we call any colourful plant a "flowers", and the croton is a flowers that all Jamaicans know.
