After the cherry blossoms are gone, Bao Loc Town in Lam Dong Province moves into the rosy trumpet season.
Trees laden with the blooms scatter light pink petals on a path.
The rose trumpet trees in bloom at Nam Phuong Lake, about two kilometers east of Bao Loc Town.
Rosy trumpet trees are about 10-15 meters tall with a broad canopy. The flowers bloom at a time when the trees shed their leaves completely.
The flowers bloom over a fisherman on the lake.
However, about a week after going into full bloom, these fragile beauties will begin to fall off the trees due in the windy weather.
The rose trumpet flowers adorning the tranquil lake is a beautiful sight from near and far.
Even at sunset, the blooms on the banks of the Nam Phuong Lake add to the quiet charm.
