One of the most beautiful and spectacular ornamental trees in full bloom at the moment in Vientiane, Laos. You can spot Flame of the Forest along the Mekong Riverside in Vientiane, Laos and through out the rest of the country around this time of the year.

When I was a little kid in Vientiane, Laos, around Boun Pi Mai Lao (Lao New Year) in April, I would be playing with my friends under this big tree in the neighborhood. It’s one of my favorite trees to admire next to Dok Champa (Plumeria), Lao National Flower.
