Yesterday, I planted a nice flower tree next to the military command gates. We all know that soldiers need flowers more than anyone, even the more so when they take over the Power and are super-busy cleaning corruption and chasing the corrupted. That is no mean feat in Thailand !
|The largest tree I've planted so far|
Tree : T019
Specie : Thevetia peruviana - รำเพย
Location : Thanon Sri Ayudthaya
Notes : Planting dedicated in honor to General Prayuth for the big clean-up on corruption ; planted opposite to military base gates
I was lucky to find a rather tall Thevetia peruviana (Yellow oleander) that was longing to be replanted where it could grow tall and be seen by all. Its beautiful yellow flowers are a perfect color match with the Thai Monarchy, that the army has sworn to protect (the constitution is currently up-held, except the article related to the Monarchy).

Perfect location - before planting

The precedent tree had died a long time ago, so the stump was rotten and i could pull it by hand effortlessly, just like rooting out bad practices, and then plant a lively healthy tree to grow over that dirty past.
