This is a more typical ginger flower than the one I showed yesterday. Although I took this photo in the central highlands, we do have ginger flowers in Tamarindo. They do not grow wild in the dry coastal forests around Tamarindo, but they grow in gardens where they receive watering. We have them growing around our condos, as developers, landscapers, hotels and restaurants like to add tropical flair and color to the plant life.
This week we have photos of the Patagonia region of Argentina posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
