Botanical Garden in Bangkok, Thailand Pt.2 (photostory)
Queen Sirikit Park : Amazing Nature's Oasis
in modern gigantic megalopolis.
Part 2: Trees and plants
This is continuation of the Photo-story. Please see the Part 1.
Some interesting plant with giant leaves
which look like of palm tree, although it is not
Various vines and creepers
"Cannonball tree" (Couroupita guianensis)
Its fruits are huge in size - actually it is said that can eat them,
but usually people give them to animals because they are too smelly
May be people grow them for their large fragrant flowers!
Sapodilla trees with fruits - called Lamoot (ละมุด) in Thailand
... also known as Zapote, Sapote, Sapota and many other names around the world
Guess the names yourself! :)
... variety of palms and similar plants
... other kind of palms
...more palms :)
Special palms? :)
Looks like Betel-nut Palm trees
Some decorative trees which look similar to banana - but directed upwards
young banana fruits emerge
Some unusual tree with no leaves ...
Some corners of the park look almost like a real jungle ...
... can even make a painting :)
Good thing about Botanical Garden: many trees and plants have signs
with names and descriptions
Example: information is in Thai, English and Latin
Some are rare plants, such as this "Thai Bauhinia" vine or climber -
with beautiful and fragrant flowers
its flowers are too high on the top of tree canopy,
hard too reach - could get only 1 single fallen petal! :)
Many trees have nice flowers
... which turn into yellow fruits :)
Thank you for visiting and reading!
Please stay tuned - photostory will continue with more flowers!
