These trees are beautiful but the branches break too easily. I don't think they are suitable for planting along roadsides. That bus stop is just under a large one too! risky in bad weather.

when the wind blows the flowers litter the streets.. not that itself is bad but there r pros n cons

my girls were schooling in Singapore, their teachers told them to collect the seeds. I chanced to walk pass a tree in the neighbourhood. My girls were the few kids who collected them. Because their mum was watchful. LOL

I agree with you. Many schools in the past had suffered from damages caused by the pretty angsana. They are really shady and pretty. I love seeing the pretty flowers on the pavements.

Angsana trees have been famous all over Malaysia. I wonder who was the first to introduce it to us!

I am sure your kids loved picking up seeds...Later I had a colleague who would pick seeds every where he went.

Do you still pick saga seeds?

Ann said...

When I visit Singapore and Malaysia, if I see anything interesting, i pick. Now, i pick with my camera. LOL

People always ask," Why you take this photo?"

After my retirement I decided to take lots of photos - and make albums - both in cyberspace and in reality...

And to take these photos - I go gallivanting --- that's a nice hobby....makes me really happy.

So when people ask me why I take photos...I stay it makes me feel happy and alive!! It is my artistic spirit speaking.....
