THESE PHOTOGRAPHS registered the scenes in the city today Sunday 7 March 2009. They certainly popped our eyes to see such beautiful colors decorating the city of Alor Star and it has come naturally of course. It has been dry and hot for the last several weeks. As we moved into March, dark clouds moved in and we had wet evenings in the last few days. The downpour since Friday evening seems to herald the blooms of these wayside trees and once again right to the day it is 'spring' time here. I have always waited for this magnificent day and mind you in 2005 and 2009 the trees bloomed exactly on the same date. Now I am perpelaxed as to how it could happen!
Imagine if a chose plot is taken and planted with this species , twenty to fifty trees in a grove. It will surely be a sight to behold come each March. No recourse to fly to Kyoto or Hiroshima. Most immediate action to get at least two plants as a start for our ground and its biological name of course . Unless of course some of my readers know it already. Have a great day. It has been for me a delightful one and certainly have raised many eyebrows. Granted too its Maulidul Rasul tomorrow.
