Every morning I love to bike along a portion of a road near us that is strewn with red-orange flowers of a fire tree/flame tree. It is so beautiful and I found it so relaxing to roll my bike over the flower-laden road. The photo above had it though it does not look nice this morning because it rained hard last night.

@ilocosboy yes I have it, though I planned to post it n another discussion. As of now I am "experimenting" with this android phone posting. But I am doing this comments on my laptop which is easier to edit.

You are lucky to have such roads. Here we occupy those nice places and fill it with buildings made of cheap material and poor layouts. We utilize such places for public toilets and drainages. Our planners and politicians are very effecting implementing agencies.

There are also places like that here, where there is no planning done, they just squat even along waterways. We were just lucky to earn and purchase a small lot for our home.

@acelawrites I don't think they are such bad. Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia are good Tourism places. My relative has brought a small statue of 'Petronas tower' and gifted it to me.

That looks beautiful, though! Even if the rain got to it! I would love to ride a bike down a path like that! :-)

It does not look messy at all, it dries up or sometimes someone sweeps it and put in the grassland.

@miniam It looks lovelier when it was not raining yet here; when sunshine dried the older ones and new ones falling on top of them.I failed to take a photo that time.

It's really relaxing to be riding on a bike and going some places beautiful. When I'm on my road bike we go 35-70km away from home and I would pass by rivers and mountains and I would arrive home feeling so wonderful.

It still looks pretty. My driveway and lawn is covered in white rose petals as we've had a lot of wind and rain. I'd rather the petals stayed on the bushes!
