Backyard Flower Garden, Tarma

“On the way up to Maca Country, we pass through, and stay, a lovely little mountain town called Tarma, "The Jewel of the Andes". Many of the flowers sold in the North American market come from Tarma, and locals often fill backyards with gorgeous flowers. I am fascinated by this backyard flower cultivation. In season, it can be spectacular. I snapped this site on the side of the road when we stopped to wait for whoever was following us.” - Zoe Helene
