    • Understand this tree is found in India and a few places too. But the Bauhinia blakeana is quite unique, it wouldn’t propate naturally. People are wondering whether so many of these trees in HK are only clones coming from just one tree which has successfully cross bred in 1880!

    • Yes, we are a lot closer to the equator. With the global warming, Springs are now very short and we have to grasp it while it is with us. Thank you for the kind comment:-)

    • I was told you can transplant trees from temperate to tropical / subtropical regions but not the other way round. I am sure you also have other beautiful plants which we don’t have. Thank you for the kind comment:-)

    • Hi, thanks so much for the nomination which I understand is an important award. I have decided not to pursue or accept any nomination / award during my retirement and for this reason, I have already turned down all similar awards. Knowing that my blog is read in many places of the world (over 160 countries) is already my biggest reward. With regret, I have to decline the nomination. Thank you once again for the nomination which is very much appreciated! Best wishes to you also, Michael

  1. Spring is almost here in Louisiana – the tulip magnolias are in bloom, but it’s still a little too early for the azaleas. The birds are everywhere, too!

    Your photos are beautiful – how lucky you are to be surrounded by these flowers!❤

  2. Exquisite pictures.Thank you Michael for liking my post( The Armenian ….) warm regards.jalal Michael.

  3. Spring renews the gardener in all of us doesn’t it? It’s such a pretty specimen. That must be amazing in mass plantings. I imagine it’s very labour intensive since it doesn’t propagate naturally, but well worth it.

    • There areso many Bauhinia blakeana trees in this place and to think that they are clones of just one tree found in 1880 is just amazing! Thank you:-)

    • Spring is really exciting with all the flowers in bloom! Really enjoy that at the moment. Thank you for the perusal and the like:-)
