Kenya is one of the world's biggest exporters of cut flowers, accounting for around one in three flowers sold in the European Union.
A worker at the Maridaidi Farm in Naivasha carries roses for export to Europe ahead of this year's Valentine's Day.
Roughly 50% of Kenya's 127 flower farms are located around Lake Naivasha, some 90 kilometers northwest of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.
The main cut flowers grown in Kenya are roses, carnations, hypericums (pictured), alstromeria, gypsophilla and lilies, amongst many others.
Several Kenyan growers are showcasing their blooms this week at the World Floral Expo in Los Angeles, one of the largest events of the industry.
The Kenya Flower Council says that an estimated 500,000 people, including more than 90,000 flower farm employees, depend on the country's floriculture industry.
