This is the season for the blooming of the Flame of The Forest.
This morning, I have a delightful walk along the seaside promenade garden in Tai Po, Hong Kong.
My walk took me past this Flame of Forest tree. There are many around in the area while I was driving there.
These photos are captured with my smartphone; so please don’t expect them to be of very high quality.
I have always like these trees in full bloom.
In Winter, they shed all the leaves and the trees become bare.
This time of the year, they are just like a flame , on tops of the trees.
Understand that’s how they got the name – people looking from afar thought the trees are on fire.
What a beautiful fire!
It is rather difficult to find one picture which represents the impressions of Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
The giant fig tree with their roots and the four faced stone statutes immediately come to mind.
However, I rather like this picture which highlight the underlying story behind . . . . . . . the green and lush forest taking over the temple leaving it “undiscovered” for centuries.
Waterfalls, trees, lakes and reflection seem to be the most common elements at Plitvice Lakes, Croatia.
Here is a photo that was taken at the lakes.
I like the serenity of the place and the green reflection.
Spring and Autumn are the seasons I like best.
I like Spring for the flowers and Autumn for the foliage.
Summer is the month I feel most mobile and energetic.
Winter is the season for my hibernation!
Here are a couple of photos taken in Morges, Switzerland during Spring.
How delightful it is to walk around the garden by the lake.
Flowers and green leaves everywhere, one complementing the other.
As long as we have clean water and a green environment, I am optimistic about our future.
This picture was taken in Panorellea Park in Cairns, Australia.
It clearly shows how green the environment can be.
The waterfall gives hope that there will be clean water for the future.
I never know much about flora and fauna.
In my retirement, I have taken a couple of talks in identifying local tree species but I am still a dummy on flora and fauna.
I am fascinated by some of the photos on flora and fauna taken by my wife in the Milford Track.
They are nothing like what I have seen elsewhere.
Here are some of them for sharing!
I think I need to research into these.
This week’s DP photo challenge is Boundary.
The trees on this picture and the fence mark the boundary to the lake.
However, the beauty does not just stop at the boundary, it continues on to the blue crystal clear lake and beyond.
Beauty cannot be contained within boundaries; it penetrates through until it reaches the heart and mind of those who see it.
