Amaryllis Forest

Dear James,

Chiang Mai is at the center of the flower industry in northern Thailand.
They have created incredible floral gardens there, not only in bulbs such as
these but in major Floriades each year where orchids, bromeliads and many
other plants developed for the floral industry are exhibited. I suspect that
the trees shown are all planted and the entire area revegetated. Impressive
to see, no doubt although its enjoyment depends on your taste. Looking at
the annual temperature profile I imagine these displays occur before the wet
season (April-October).
