Flowers in the city
« on: March 13, 2017, 09:26:39 PM »


I walked pass the streets and loved these flowers.
I feel very happy , girl always like flowers  ;D  then I think that we may grow them along the streets so it will look like Sakura flowers in Japan or Sakura in Chiang mai.

Then we will have Sakura in Korat in March.   :-*

They look lovely, Pookie. What kind of trees are they? Are they เสลา ?

They look a bit like Almond blossom but I am probably wrong, very pretty though

Thanks for men also like flowers.  ;D

The 1st picture is Chompu Pantip , ชมพูพันธุ์ทิพย์ which is opposite Wat payap.
The 2nd picture is Ta bake , ตะแบก which is opposite to Muang school.
The 3rd picture is Ta bake , ตะแบก which is on moat near corner of Wat Salaloi

Information of trees ,
Chompu Pantip , ชมพูพันธุ์ทิพย์ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabebuia_rosea
Ta bake , ตะแบก https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagerstroemia_floribunda

For Cassia javanica or Chai ya pruek , ชัยพฤกษ์ : It also look like Sakura , if it is pink or white.
I saw it at Suan Rak , สวนรัก or I call Boon Leur and Korat caravan garden :D
Tomorrow , I will take a picture and post here.  ;D

Oh.... There are more 2 trees and make us confuse in their names and flowers (white/pink).
กาฬพฤกษ์ Gala pruek (Cassia grandis)
กัลปพฤกษ์ Galapa pruek (Cassia bakeriana) , we call Care Farang , แคฝรั่ง  ;D ;D

These are more pictures of white/pink flowers.
They are in Suan Rak area , opposite to Wat payap building.
They are beautiful , very beautiful if they are grown together in line or group but I see they are separated.  >:(

Are you sure they are Ta-bek, Pookie?

I think it is too early in the year for Tabek tress to be flowering. I think they might actually be Salao (เสลา) or Intanin (อินทนิล). The bark on the tree in picture three doesn't look like a Tabek tree. It's probably a Salao (but maybe an Intanin).
