Flowers in Flores

Flores means Flowers in Portuguese, and this island does not disappoint! In the spring, the island is supposedly covered in flowers, but in the winter, flowers still shine through. 


We see many remains of hydrangeas that had bloomed, now covered in the brown remains of their white or blue flowers, and other plants that have since gone to fruit after the blooming has ceased. That said, the island is covered in plants and there are some that choose to bloom at different times. These select plants have much less competition from the other plants for the attention of bees! Bees seem to be condensed around the few flowering plants, giving them all the attention they could desire, making it rather beneficial for the plants to bloom at a time away from all the other plants.
