splash of orange

Philippines has its own “cherry blossom trees.”—Don’t be fooled, I am not advertising the country, nor trying to fool anybody that we do have “cherry trees.” I am trying to express my interest and somehow influence other people to get interested in these trees that bloom every summer. Instead of pink blossoms, they bloom orange(red orange) flowers. You can find it along the LRT line. Hotspots are R. Papa, Central, and Pedro Gil stations respectively.

I don’t even know its name, not that I didn’t even try. I asked many of my friends already about that tree. Here is a shot. I know I don’t give justice to how beautiful they are. I don’t have a proper camera, you see. I just use my phone cam whenever I see something good. Aside from that, I get to take photos while I am aboard LRT—needless to say, I love my “sports” application now. Anyway, if you have the time, and you take the LRT, or you live near the stations I have already mentioned, you will easily find them.

As I look at those trees while going to my present work, I ask why people, particularly Filipinos love cherry blossoms. I don’t know the answer to this one since I myself am interested in them.

. I am quite guilty of loving other nation’s beauty than my own and the “orange” trees have just reminded me about that.
All I can say is those splashes of orange on the green, blue and grey background beat any kaleidoscope in the world.
