SAKURA FORECAST IN PENANG ( :P)
This week is estimated by Nonaro as to be the best time of viewing the sakura blooming in PENANG especially in USM Nibong Tebal. The ” Penang Sakura ” or scientifically called as Tabebuia Rosea, is claimed as the first time flowering in Penang and captures a lot of USM students’ attention now. Also known as Pink Tecoma or Rosy Trumpet tree, this species is native in Central and South America at the tropical belt. Commonly found growing from sealevel to 1,200 m (3,937 ft), in temperatures ranging from 20°C to 30°C on average, with annual rainfall above 500 mm, and on soils with very variable pH (Wikipedia ~ Tabebuia Rosea).
If you miss seeing them, these trumpet flowers will greet us again soon.
So wishing you a happy Penang Sakura Season and have a nice day with the beautiful journey along the way to your school!
May Allah put the beauty of His Love in your heart for each single view on the beautiful scenery of His creation.
