I have been in Thailand for a couple of weeks enjoying the sun, warmth and lush colours of the plants so I had to include some photos.
- Cannonball tree
Never heard of this before, a native of south America and related to the Brazil nut tree. Revered by Buddhists and planted near temples. A tall solid looking tree with girly pink flowers and extraordinary round hard wood like fruit (the cannon balls).
- Orchid farm just outside Bangkok
Somewhere in the canal and river network far away from the streets and traffic of Bangkok there is this little haven.
- Koi Samui airport
This is the prettiest airport I have ever been to! The grounds are more like a botanical garden than human transit station. There is even a lotus pool.
- Pruned apple tree
The tree surgeon sorted out the apple this week. It was beginning to take over when in leaf. I love its clean strong shape now.
- Snowdrops in their full glory
- Witch hazel
My favourite shrub illuminated against the blue sky yesterday. Unfortunately, it is grey today but spring is on its way.
