Many parts of the streets have come alive in a burst of scent and colour after the angsana trees started blooming along the roads in Penang.
They have been putting on a show for us over the past few weeks and they show no signs of stopping just yet.
Some trees have already flowered and finished, but I also noticed that some trees were just beginning to flower, or on the downside of flowering but with tons of blossoms left.
They bloom unexpectedly for just one day, then fall the next morning, showering sidewalks with a carpet of flowers.
The blooming season begins from February and ends in May but I wish the blooming period could last longer so we have more time to enjoy them.
I absolutely like the intoxicating smell of the flowers, and it's kinda sad when they finished blooming.
Here's a close up of some Angsana flowers.
