Phnom Penh Abloom

For the last month or so Phnom Penh has been abloom with flowers (phka.) The flower trees that line some of the major boulevards and many of the side streets have come to life with color. Same thing happens every year around this time - the early hot season. The monsoon rains are still a couple of months away, but the mango showers have begun and seem to feeding the blooming. It's a comparatively pretty time of year in Phnom Penh.

I took the following photos over the last month as I've done my exercise walks around the city. Most were taken with an iPhone so are of relatively low quality but still give an idea of the look of the city right now.
